lyrics

AN OFFICER’S LOVE
Sheila Sherman Blake / Georgia Middleman

He was an officer
I was an enlistee
We stayed friends through the years
He was kind of like a brother to me

He was my go-to guy
Only a call away
He would pray for me and I would pray for him
At the end of the day

So what do you do
When you get that kind of news

Who’m I gonna laugh with
Who’m I gonna cry with now
Who’s gonna see inside me
Who’s gonna be there to guide me now

In 2001, I said
I’d never fly again
But he talked me into coming to see
My long lost friend

He still looked the same to me
We both had a few gray hairs
But looking in his eyes it was almost like
He was always there

Lord, if you can hear me
Please don’t let him leave me

Who’m I gonna laugh with
Who’m I gonna cry with now
Who’s gonna see inside me
Who’s gonna be there to guide me now

He was an officer
I was an enlistee
We stayed friends through the years
He was kind of like a brother to me
