Just wanted you to know

Just wanted you to know

I just wanted you to know,
  how proud I am of you.
Even if it doesn't show,
  my feelings are so true.

I know things got really tough,
  your faith passed the test.
I do believe it was most rough,
  when you laid your friend to rest.

I will say one thing real loud,
  a feeling that is true.
I am very, very proud,
  of my soldier which is you.
