Waiting for the trigger of a gun,
They stand in suspense, staring at each other,
Wondering who will make the first move.
On Easter day the soldiers fight
Though to them each day's the same.
But we can thank them in all that they do
And pray they come home safely.
Easter is a time to look back
On what people have done for others -
Just like the soldiers in Afghanistan
Who have sacrificed themselves for us.
