Dawns Early Light

Softly does the day break,
From the noises of the night
Gentle dawn adds color,
To the gray of the night

Tired eyes ease their vigil,
From staring at the night
Muscles start relaxing,
From the tenseness of the night

As thoughts of home take over,
From the dangers of the night
I raise a tired smile to the dawn,
And start reloading mags.
