Put down the gun

take off the helmet,

unstrap the boots

wipe off the blood.


Halt the tanks,

discard the missiles,

write me back

come home soon.


Just end the war

end the battles,

hold my hand

and dry my tears.


Send home the troops

send home my love,

it’s what I dream of:

You coming home.
