Why Do Good Guys Have to Die
 
While wells of oil burn in flame
 
The distant glow just isn’t the same
 
It once was fun to stare afar
 
And wish upon our favorite star
 
But now that star could be an eye
 
A friend, a man, a special guy
 
We knew this man from moments past
 
But then we thought the times would last
 
We came so far on dreams alone
 
And prayed our prayers of going home
 
We fought each mile gaining ground
 
And never once backing down
 
Through wind, rain, and enemy fire
 
The coalition refused to tire
 
We gave up sleep and meals too
 
For most of us we made it through
 
We learned that war is not a game
 
And never seems to fight the same
 
We also learned you hunker down
 
And when it’s over watch your ground
 
We thought it was safe to wander stray
 
But now our friend has passed away
 
Why do good guys have to die?
 
I have no answer, just goodbye!
