Such a sad tale

Such a sad tale

O`er the water the man did come

To the beauty of this town he did succumb

He stayed a while to pass the days

Eventual rest makes this where he stays

But twas while he stopped off the village green

The stories emerged of what he had seen

Since a young one to soldering he`d been dedicated

A lass he did meet and became infatuated

Then alas away to war with all the rest

She was left behind to fend as best

While battle raged and bombs flew low

He wrote a letter with seeds to sow

Seeds of love he told her about

Soon to consummate and to murder doubt

Whilst on leave in the big black town

Married became in a white bed he laid her down

Back to war a very happy man

He left behind his biggest fan

Nine months on he`s still away

She`s with child no time to play

A son is delivered one windy night

Alas he`s ignorant of her plight

Here it is this sad twist of fate

For when he came home it was too late

The bomb that struck hit her clean

That is that fate had been

All alone, he was for years

No wife no child

Just memories and tears
