    Coming Home
    (written by Billy Little) 10th November 2007

    Inside the grey steel womb, of a C130
    Flag covered coffins quietly lie
    The bodies of fine young soldiers
    Oh why did they have to die.

    Fine words are spoken for these gallant men
    Whose coffins are inside
    Lets all try to comprehend
    The reason why they died

    Fighting terrorism in a far off land
    Leaving behind the ones they love
    They are doing their duty for a promised Land
    Seeking the trust of the God above

    Oh why do men invent such things
    As implements of war?
    To kill our love ones, break our hearts
    Oh, God what is it for?

    Why do so many have to go
    Why don't they all return?
    We must leave the answer to our God
    It is for us to learn!

    They are gone but not forgotten
    They are in our hearts and mind
    They will always be a part of us
    Until the end of time

    Always remember the sacrifices that they made
    The hardships they had to endure
    The bravery of all the soldiers, alive and dead
    So that we can live in peace for evermore
