A SOLDIER DIED TODAY {`In Remembrance Of My Brother's {`US Medic Paratrooper`} Anniversary Of Giving His Life For Our Country's Freedom, I dedicate This Honor Hymn to Him!`} ~`*+*`~ ~`*+*`~ ~`* ♥*`~ A SOLDIER DIED TODAY He was getting old and paunchy                     And his hair was falling fast,                     And he sat around the VFW,                     Telling\ of the past. Of a war that he once fought in                     And the deeds that he had done,                     In his exploits with his buddies;                     They were heroes, every one. And 'tho sometimes to his neighbors                     His tales became a joke,                     All his buddies listened quietly                     For they knew where of he spoke. But we'll hear his tales no longer,                     For ol' Bob has passed away,                     And the world's a little poorer                     For a Soldier died today. He won't be mourned by many,                     Just his children and his wife.                     For he lived an ordinary,                     Very quiet sort of life. He held a job and raised a family,                     Going quietly on his way;                     And the world won't note his passing,                     'Tho a Soldier died today. When politicians leave this earth,                     Their bodies lie in state,                     While thousands note their passing,                     And proclaim that they were great. Papers tell of their life\                     From the time that they were young                     But the passing of a Soldier                     Goes unnoticed, and unsung. Is the greatest contribution                     To the welfare of our land                     Some jerk who breaks his promise                     And cons his fellow man? Or the ordinary fellow                     Who in times of war and strife,                     Goes off to serve his country                     And offers up his life. The politician's stipend                     And the style in which he lives,                     Are often disproportionate,                     To the service that he gives. While the ordinary Soldier,                     Who offered up his all,                     Is paid off with a medal                     And perhaps a pension, small. It's so easy to forget them,                     For it is so many times below                     That our Bobs and Jims and Johnnys,                     Went to battle, but we know, It is not the politicians                     With their compromise and ploys,                     Who won for us the freedom                     That our country now enjoys. Should you find your in danger,                     With your enemies at hand,                     Would you really want some cop-out,                     With his ever waffling stand? Or would you want a Soldier--                     His home, his country, his kin,                     Just a common Soldier,                     Who would fight until the end. He was just a common Soldier,                     And his ranks are growing thin,                     But his presence should remind us                     We may need his like again. For when countries are in conflict,                     We find the Soldier's part                     Is to clean up all the troubles                     That the politicians start. If we cannot do him honor                     While he's here to hear the praise,                     Then at least let's give him homage                     At the ending of his days. Perhaps just a simple headline                     In the paper that might say:                     "OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING,                     A SOLDIER DIED TODAY." *********************************************************************************** `Unknown Author,` But Truly a Great One!
