 A Soldiers Song
There is no song to sing on battlefields
past and present

The code was to serve for reasons their own

Whether it was for GOD or country, they went
with purpose and courage

Blood was spilled and life was sacrificed for
total strangers as well as countrymen

Their duty became their finest hour and history
would be made as lives both lost and found
carved the present

Through ramparts and barbwire, close combat
and desires, relentless was their cause

Upon leaving loved ones behind their most
treasured moment would be their goodbye
and hellos after their tours of duty

Those lost on the field of honor would be
remembered through presentations of distinguished
medals of honor, flags upon their caskets folded
delicately before the eyes of their survivors

Those who returned home were thankful to have
done so but more thankful to have served than to
be served

No one but the warriors of these times will know
of war that raged in and around them

Carnage is still breathed in many of them this day

No song to sing, no parades to celebrate their
misfortunes, just gratitude will do this day

They did not go to return to pomp and circumstance

They went to give you this day and tomorrow with
hope that this world will come to know peace one

The Soldiers Song, silent but proud

This write is my thanks to all who gave to give


Every one of them an unsung hero

Needing no song to sing
