Veteran’s Day

What does it mean to be a vet?

To have seen things that you may never forget

The lives lost, the lives given to be free

The picture above says it more plain than me

Those of us here share in the pain,

But the families of soldiers who have died will remain

In our hearts although they will never know

That the lives they gave allow my children to grow.

And so I say these words to you

May your thoughts on this day be true

Many have died for us today

Given their lives so that we may stay

Free to hope, to dream, to live another day

In our hearts, minds and thoughts you’ll stay!
