A Veteran Tribute
Hold your heads up high
Wherever you happen to be
Let us honor you
And show our gratitude for your sacrifices
for your country
Those of you that were there to
fight for our new beginning as a country
we depended on you
The ones that fought against brothers
to keep our new country as one
we cried with you
Our men and women that served in our military
to protect our way of life overseas
and helped other nations find a better way
we supported you
Our veterans that returned home
sometimes broken, bruised and battered
with a heavy heart and questions
that were left unanswered
our hearts broke for you
The men and the women that never got
to come back home to the arms of
their loving families
we whisper your names in our prayers
Our fellow countrymen that are missing still
somewhere 'over there'
we will never forget you
Loved..revered and honored, ALL
We raise the Glory Banner high
It gently waves proudly in the breeze
Wrapping you in the strength and wisdom and
the loving embrace of its colors
A lasting tribute to you
Our honored Veterans.

Do you enjoy the freedoms
that have been preserved for us by our Veterans?
I then suggest to you, that you thank them
and say a little prayer for them.
