Mr Battle

Five people progressed to their goals,
Little did they know it was the end. 
Those five people went through hell to earn their berets,
Little did they know it was the end. 
They earned their berets, proud to be a soldier,
Little did they know it was the end. 
Returning home to visit their loved ones,
Until they get sent away for months on end,
Little did they know it was the end. 
Hoping they will see their friends and family after a few months,
Counting the days to get back to them,
Little did they know it was the end. 
On patrol, day in, day out. Being cautious hoping no ambushes or attacks will occur. Getting back to camp still cautious but relaxed,
Little did they know it was the end.
Night after night, those five people sleeping in fear; just wishing for a good night  sleep,
Little did they know it was the end. 
Hoping all the never ending days and nights will soon be over, so they can once again see their loved ones,
Little did they know it was the end.
A blast of light and ringing in their ears,
Little did they know it was the end, 
Fade in, fade out. No noise, no sound,
Little did they know it was the end. 
Broken bodies, broken hearts. Their sacrifice will never be forgotten,
Little did they know we will always remember them.
