Buried deep down in our hearts
Lies a treasured call,
To remember of their courage
For our country to stand tall.
They didn't know what lay ahead
Walking into dark unknown,
But, we know that they sure loved us
Caring completely for their own.
For those of us now left behind
How can we comprehend their sacrifice,
In walking away from loving homes
And other plans for their lives.
Their gift we can never dream to repay
So our only course of action left,
Is to live in humble gratitude
And wisely use their precious gift.
They gave us all our freedom
The treasure of our faith and land,
We thank them for their amazing love
Of life given for their fellow man.

Poetry from the heart
John 3:36 (KJV)
He that believeth on the Son
hath everlasting life:
and he that believeth not
the Son shall not see life;
but the wrath of God abideth on him.
