Jimmy’s Coming Home Today

by William

Jimmy’s coming home today

His mother knows her boy is on his way

She cleans the room where he used to stay

 

Jimmy’s coming home today

“He’s a man now” she often would say

“He’s big and strong, but gentle in his way”

 

Jimmy’s coming home today

He is always so full of fun

He would never walk, when he could run

 

Jimmy’s coming home today

His mother is so filled with pride

Even though he never took a bride

 

Jimmy’s coming home today

His mother’s tears will guide his way

His quiet burial will end this day

Jimmy’s coming home

To stay
