To The Soldiers
Many years ago
A while before I was born,
A young man
was called away
To help settle an uprising storm.
He was tall, dark and handsome
As the legend is told;
He was just another boy sent across the sea
With a gun to hold.
And I thank God for the freedom
That he helped to keep.
And I pray for God
To help the families who are left to weep, and
I thank God for the bravery
That each soldier shows.
And I pray that none will die in vain
As the cannons roll.
I know that there are many,
And perhaps you don't understand
Why I take the time to remember those
From the jungles and the sands.
No, I have never met them,
Yet, of them I tell
Because wearing our nation's uniforms
In battles they fell.
