lyrics

MOTHER SOLDIER
Jennifer Allen / Darden Smith

I wore your picture in a locket
When I was overseas
So no matter where I traveled
I carried you with me

I missed Christmas I missed birthdays
Your first day at school
But right here over my heart
I always carried you

Mother soldier
The hardest thing I’ll ever do
I kept your picture in a locket
That’s how I made it through
When I was a mother and a soldier too

I couldn’t take the missing you
So I shut down my heart
Now you’re right here next to me
I’ve forgotten where to start

Mother soldier
I did what I had to do
And that picture in a locket
That’s how I made it through
When I was a mother and a soldier too

I just hope you understand
I’m doing the best I can
And I’m trying to make up for lost time

Mother soldier
Still doing what I have to do
And that picture in a locket
That’s how I make it through
I keep your picture in a locket
That’s how I make it through
I’m a mother and a soldier too
I’m a mother and a soldier too
