FROM THE DARKNESS TO THE LIGHT

Veterans Day Offering





~A Medal of Honor...A Moment of Silence~


SOLDIERS DYING ACROSS THE SEAS
FAMILYS PRAYING FOR THEIR SAFETY
A SAFE RETURN HOME, FOR THEIR BABIES

SOME WILL NEVER SEE.

ENEMYS KILLING, FROM NOWHERE IT SEEMS
SHATTERING, SO MANY HOPES AND DREAMS
IN LANDS, SO FAR AWAY FROM HOME
WEARY AND TIRED OUR SOLDIERS GROAN

WARS OF THE PRESENT
WARS OF THE PAST
THOUSANDS DYING
HOW LONG WILL THIS LAST?

SOME WILL COME BACK ALIVE
SOME IN WHEELCHAIRS
SOME NEVER TO RETURN
SOME CAN'T BE RECOGNIZED

AND

NONE OF US WILL EVER BE THE SAME

NOT ONE MAN
NOT ONE WOMAN
NOT ONE CHILD, WHO WILL NEVER KNOW A PARENT
PARENTS WILL BURY THEIR CHILREN
WIFES WILL BURY THEIR HUSBANDS
HUSBANDS WILL BURY THEIR WIVES
CHILDREN WILL BURY THEIR PARENTS

NONE OF THEM

WILL EVER BE THE SAME


FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM
FIGHTING FOR YOU AND ME
FIGHTING FOR THEIR COUNTRY
FIGHTING TO KEEP IT FREE

A MEDAL OF HONOR, THIS COUNTRYS HIGHEST AWARD
SHOULD BE GIVEN TO ALL
HERE AND ABROAD
FOR PUTTING THEIR LIVES RIGHT ON THAT LINE
TO SAVE US ALL FROM THE DEVILS PAWN

SO TO SOLDIERS AND VETS ACROSS THE LAND
TO YOU I WILL RAISE UP MY HAND
TO SALUTE YOUR COURAGE,
YOUR LOVE
YOUR PAIN...YOUR LIFE..

A MEDAL OF HONOR
YOU ALL DESERVE
FOR YOUR HONOR
THERE IS NO WORD..

NOW A MOMENT OF SILENCE I GIVE
THAT ALL OF YOU WILL ALWAYS LIVE
IN OUR HEARTS
IN OUR MINDS
FOREVER AND EVER
THROUGH ALL TIME..

YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
