This is a song, an elegy, written by a character of mine in my fantasy stories.
Little Soldier Boy


By Joseph Jackson




Little soldier boy, marching off to war,


Little soldier boy, proudly with your sword,


Little soldier boy, into the fray,


Little soldier boy, march back home to me.




Little soldier boy, fighting for your life,


Little soldier boy, with all your might.


Little soldier boy, fight on for me,


Little soldier boy, to march home to me.




Little soldier boy, lying on the ground,


Little soldier boy, slowly bleeding out,


Little soldier boy, see the angels come,


Little soldier boy, to bear you home.




Little soldier boy, never to march home,


Little soldier boy, you have fought well,


Little soldier boy, you have me proud,


Little soldier boy, now I lay you down.


Little soldier boy, hear the trumpets sound,


Little soldier boy, you're a hero now.


Little soldier boy, you are home now.




Little soldier boy, you are a light,


Little soldier boy, shining in the darkness.


Little soldier boy, Â your name will live on,


Little soldier boy, and as I write this song,


Little soldier boy, all I can do is pray,


Little soldier boy, that you're in a better place,


Little soldier boy, free of fear and pain,


Little soldier boy, you are home now.
