IíM MISSING HOME
©) 2004 Bonnie Wilson Daniels

Here I am in a distant land,
Far across the sea,
Fighting a war I didn't plan,
Helping set people free,
I proudly wear this uniform,
Face danger I have never known,
But I want to finish up this job,
Because Iím missing home.

Chorus:
I miss my love I left behind,
I miss her body close to mine,
My little boy I've yet to see,
They say he looks a lot like me,
My best friends I've always had,
My brother, sister, mom, and dad,
For them I'd give up all I own,
But, Lord I'm missing home

I understand just why Iím here,
Itís very plain to me,
Deep down inside each person's heart,
There's a yearning to live free,
Safe from the tyrant's evil ways,
We fight to help them take a stand,
And to keep the enemy from our shores,
Oh America----God bless our land

Bridge:
Lord, help me do my very best,
I see the needs and I canít rest,
Until theyíre met and all is well,
Then rescue me from this awful hell !!
Iím missing home--------

I miss her body close to mine,
My little boy I've yet to see,
They say he looks a lot like me,
My best friends I've always had,
My brother, sister, mom and dad,
For them I'd give up all I own,
But, Lord I'm missing home
Iím Missing Home---------

Lord, I'm missing home
