Three Wonderful Letters from Home
Three letters left a village bound for somewhere over there,
Three letters to a lonesome soldier lad.
Each one a loving story told, each one worth its weight in gold,
Three messages that made his poor heart glad:
For the first was just old fashioned, and it breathed a mother’s pray’r,
While the next one started “Darling, God protect you over there,”
And the third was filled with kisses, sent to daddy ‘cross the foam,
From his mother, wife and baby, three wonderful letters from home.
Each word was like a soft caress that soothed his aching heart,
And drove away the mis’ry and pain.
Then joy returned to take their place and brought a vision of each face,
As o’er and o’er he read their words again:
