A poem from an American soldier in the middle of the war!

Follow a poem from an American soldier in the middle of the war!
Hope that inspires and intrigues you, but mainly I hope that makes you wonder...
"Lord God I have never spoken to you
But now I want to say, "How do you do?"
You see, God, they told me You didn't exist
And like a fool I believed all this
Last night from a shell hole I saw your sky
I figured right then they had told me a lie
Had I taken time to see the things you made
I'd have known they weren't calling a spade a spade
I wonder, God, if you'll take my hand
Somehow I feel that you'll understand
Funny I had to come to this hellish place
Before I had time to see Your face
Well, I guess there isn't much more to say
But I'm sure glad, God, I met you today
I guess zero hour will soon be here
But I'm not afraid since I know
you're near
The signal!
Well, God, I'll have to go
I like You lots, I want you to know
Look now this will be a horrible fight
Who knows, I may come to Your house tonight
Though I wasn't friendly to You before
I wonder, God, if You'd wait at Your door
Look, I'm crying, I'm shedding tears
I'll have to go now God goodbye
Strange now, since I met You, I'm not afraid to die"
