~*`IN HONOR OF ALL WARRIORS`*~ {DEDICATION`}

A SOLDIER DIED TODAY ~`*`+`*`~ My Dear Poetry Friends, and Relatives   Who Have Been So Very Kind With Prayers In Expressing Condolences To Our family In Our Time Of Bereavement, I Sincerely Thank You Deeply For The Compassion Of Your Hearts Which Are Helping All Of Us Through This Mourning Period of Our Beloved Brother! ~`*`+`*`~ BEING HE IS A HONORABLE RETIRED VETERAN, ALL BURIAL ARRANGEMENTS WERE CARRIED OUT BY THE VETERAN'S BENEFIT ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF, WITH A HONORABLE FLIGHT FROM STATE OF WEST VIRGINIA TO THE VETERAN'S BURIAL CEMETERY IN HAWAII, WHERE HE FIRST SIGNED HIS LIFE TO GOD AND COUNTRY IN THE HONOR OF KEEPING PEACE FOR ALL NATIONS! MAY GOD BLESS AND WELCOME HIM HOME AS WE THANK HIM FOR HIS GREAT SACRIFICE IN HELPING TO KEEP OUR COUNTRY FREE FROM TYRANNY! IN HIS HONOR AND ON BEHALF OF OUR FAMILIES, I DEDICATE THE FOLLOWING POEM TO HIM AND FAMILY, WITH ELVIS SINGING HIS FAVORITE SONG, "GREEN GREEN GRASS OF HOME" `MAY YOU FINALLY REST IN PEACE, OUR DEARLY BELOVED BROTHER! ~`*`+`*`~ ~`*`+`*`~ ~*` A POEM WORTH READING`*~{IN HONOR OF ALL WARRIORS} - author unknown - ~*`+`*~ *+* ":A SOLDIER DIED TODAY:" *+* ~*+*~ He was getting old and paunchy And his hair was falling fast, And he sat around the Legion, 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 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." ~*+*~
