 Reflections of My Heart

Thank You  ~  Memorial Day




Thank You

 For those who
Have faithfully served
Bigger words than I have
Are so well deserved

You leave your family
And all those you love
To protect us all
You get blessings from above

I know what its like standing on a pier
Two little girls hands holding so tight
Not knowing if alive he will return
After for me and our country they bravely fight

Each of you unselfishly give all you have
For oh too many the sacrifice is ultimate
All that is left for a parent or spouse to cling
Is memories and a flag that draped casket

My words are humble
But heart fully true
All I have is a simple
Thank You

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ

Thank You
