Each morning, I take a walk down the street,
As the sunrise ushers in, another day to greet,
It’s quiet now, with only the bird’s songs to hear,
Life’s special moment, may it never disappear,
How many of us, are willing to take the time,
For a walk with nature, as a friend of mine.
Many times we awaken, in the middle of the night,
As if we just blinked, during an unknown fight,
Startled and suddenly awake, we jump to our feet,
Always the fighter, that will never admit defeat,
Our dreams open windows, to a future of what might be,
But only our fate, knows what really will be waiting for me.
We guard our country, on watch each night,
With boots on the ground, always first to fight,
Like Spartans of old, we are our nation’s spear,
The devil dogs of war, that all our enemies fear,
We stand ready to protect our Red, White and Blue,
A highly trained military force, made of the chosen few.
Listen to the thunder, of his battle cry,
When our flag is flown, on the 4th of July,
Our Dear Uncle Sam, was born an independent man,
Who stood his ground, to protect our land,
His spirit shared, by a nation fighting to be free,
Is symbolized today, by an old man that looks like me.
The moment that each one of us are born,
A bond is made that can never be torn,
We all attempt to repay the gift from that day,
To the one that shared her love and watched us play,
So on this day we remember our mom, who was so kind,
And the memories we shared, that will forever fill our mind.
A time of my sacrifice, for all that I eternally love,
To my father I fly, on the wings of the dove,
Son of my father, I stand here humble but proud,
Risen from the grave, wrapped in a heavenly shroud,
Those that will forever pray and always believe,
I promise to return and never again to leave.
The pack leader stands over his fresh kill,
Calling to the pack, before he has his fill,
Being a good provider is his one and only goal,
But many years of hunting, have taken their toll,
Soon another leader will emerge to take his place,
A younger generation, that will carry on the race.
