When wolves come baying,

howling at the door

soldiers they prepare for war

Make It Out Alive

Each time he stepped out

on the battle field

He couldn’t catch his breath,

Normally things didn’t rattle him

but those days he was scared to death,

He was prepared for any sacrifice

but he kept asking himself,

“Will my new bride be a widow tonight,

or will I make it out alive”?

He knew he wasn’t the only one

with such thoughts weighing on his mind,

Soldiers thinking about families

that they left behind

Brother Soldiers

When he turned 18,

In some ways he was still a boy,

but he was also a newly minted man

Answering Uncle Sam’s command,

He was shipped off to a foreign land

His uniform & boots were soon covered

in blood,sweat & sand

He felt it was a noble calling to serve his country

so he took that stand…

War changed him in a way some people will never

understand, but he’s glad his brother soldiers can

They were truly a band of heroes

Memorial Day

Memorial day is to remember

Those soldiers who answered the call

but who never made it home alive

who bravely gave their all

It’s not about a three day weekend

It’s not about BBQ’s with drinks over ice

Though those things are nice…

It’s about those who gave

the ultimate sacrifice

Greater love hath no man than this,

that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13
