words and music by Reika Hunt

lyrics

My love was a soldier
He was handsome and tall
My love was the brightest light
In a world full of dark
He gathered all the moonlight
Into the stone I wear on my breast
He kissed me once on my lips
And disappeared into the west

The river is swift and the mountain is high
The howling wolf, mournful and wild
The cedar is tall and the ocean is wide
But not as wide as the ocean that I cried

I loved my soldier
I loved my golden boy
He filled my heart so
With pride and joy

The river is swift and the mountain is high
The howling wolf, mournful and wild
The cedar is tall and the ocean is wide
But not as wide as the ocean that I cried
