Selfless Sacrifice

When we’re in bed at home safe and asleep

There is always Armed Forces Serviceman

Who neither slumbers or sleeps a wink

He paces forth and back on his faithful duty

To keep America safe and filled with beauty

Not one complaint or fuss he will make

Knowing possibly it is his or her life

The enemy vows to take

He or She gives them selves up so freely

So that you and I might enjoy Democracy

I am grateful for all their sacrifice

He or She is the only other to die for me

Besides my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

I pray may God Bless and keep you

Each and Everyone

May your souls and your spirits

Always shine brighter than the sun

I pray that all will remember you

The Families, The Lost, and Loved Ones too

Remembering you all in gratitude in every way…

That we may not take for granted your sacrifices

Each and Everyday….
