A True Marine

 A True Marine

Three days until you'll be leaving
my heart just won't believe
you take a piece of me with you
every time you leave
but you stand there so strong
like a true Marine always does
and every time you go away
you take with you my love

Two days left to go now
it's finally sinking in
it's going to be quite some time now
before I see your smiling eyes again
but you stand there so tough
like a true Marine always does
you smile to reassure me
you're taking with you my love

One more day to go now
I see the tears welling in your eyes
you try and tell me they're not there
but you can't tell me lies
so you stand there so proud
like a true Marine always does
and you promise to remember
you're taking with you my love

The time has come and gone now
you're on your way away from here
and you don't seem to understand
why my heart's so filled with fear
as you walked away so straight and tall
like a true Marine always does
you turned with tears running down your cheeks--
and saluted me
knowing that you're taking with you my love
