    The dreaded day came when he had to leave
    His pregnant wife and unborn child
    To serve his country like so many before him
    Knowing he may not make it back
    It was love
    Iraq was like no training he had ever had
    This was real, one mistake could end his life
    But when he was down, he thought of his family
    And all he had left behind back home
    It was love
    As the weeks wore on, he gained lasting friendships
    With those who were with him in war
    These friendships proved more than imaginable
    That one fatal day when another took a bullet for him
    It was love
    He dropped to his knees beside his dear friend
    Who muttered "your wife called"
    Before drifting into eternal sleep in the heavens
    To be with his father, the man up above
    It was love
