The Unknown Soldier

There's a tomb in Washington D.C.
Where lies the body of a soldier
That represents all the unknown to be
Soldiers that died without an identity

God bless the red, white, and blue
"America" the definition means "loveable"
God chose our nation to represent you
To have a heart full of love, giving and true

This soldier along with many more
Have fought for our freedom
From overseas, on land, air and distant shores
What more can a man give to restore

Keeping us safe from enemy at hand
They gave their lives to preserve our land
A nation now that many have turned from God
Prayers and ten commandments they now trod

A soldier on shift now marches to and fro
Taking an oath to live a clean life and uphold
Through rain,sleet or snow
This tomb is guarded to honor all the unknown

" Known only by God "
Dear precious lives were taken
Chosen by a spray of white roses layed on a coffin
You represent all the unknown to never be forgotten
