Veteran's Day

Today's the day
When we celebrate hero's lives taken away
Fighting wars to keep us free
The land we know to you and me
They gave us something special and true
And we were to take that freedom to start anew
Times have changed since that first battle raged
But it was the freedom we desired not to be stuck in a cage
Days have gone by
When their loved ones do cry
Thinking and remembering
The gift they gave; that light still quivering
Longing to never be blown out
Because we would surely forget, no doubt
The present life they bestowed upon us
We sent them off to battle with all of our trust
Knowing they may not come back is hard to grasp
But someone had to do it for our freedom no matter the task
Life's a risk so why not try
To do something you believe in even if you may die
You only live once so don't hold back
They fought for all our lives, bend down and relish that fact
Some came home to see their loved ones hugging them close
And others came back in a wooden box tightly closed
Some were lost and labeled as such
But we will never stop loving them oh so much
For those who survived, or passed I kneel down and bow to say
I thank you each and every single waking day
