My Soldier

My soldier once raised his hand;
swore to protect this land.

He stood tall and proud;
never gave up ground.

Right from the start,
he served with heart.

Once he had his fun,
his time was done.

He became a Vet,
one to honor and celebrate.

Now, he slumbers in the land
where once he raised his hand.

His body lays in the ground;
under the American flag he is found.

My Soldier,
who from the start,
served with heart.

I reside in the heart of New England with my 2 sons and my husband. My eldest son visits us frequently. When not in the office, I love to sing and to write and more than anything I love God and I follow Him truly truly ♥
