Though we are thousands of miles apart
I sense your presence in my heart
While I am fighting to keep us free
Love...remember me





I have never loved you more
Than when I had to walk out that door
And leave the safety of our family
Love...remember me





In a foreign country so far away
Thoughts of you see me through each day
From a place where I don't want to be
Love...remember me





An interloper in a hostile land
Facing death in the burning sand
In a war with which I disagree
Love...remember me





Watching friends die before my eyes
Being brave while my inner soul cries
Atrocities I never thought I'd see
Love...remember me





Here by orders and not my choice
Trying hard to remember your voice
If I don't return to where I should be
Love...remember me
