 Poems by The Old Cowboy

Veterans One and All

The years have sped by keeping us apart
So many have passed since in that war we fought

Now we have band together again
Finding our old and making new friends

The war and time has not been kind
Most of us now have precious little time

The day draws near when we all will be gone
Hoping that others coming will still sing our song

Preserving, saving our proud history
Not allowing us to become forgotten memories

As young warriors of this great land
We would have died to the last man

Now we stand looking back as aged men
Hoping God forgives us of sins

Welcoming us all home to his grace
In heavens veterans wonderful place

                                                                  Edwin J. Smith
