Veterans Day: Never Once

lndscpredding2006-copy

I do not know what nightmare you had gone through

I do not know how lonely you felt time to time

Never once did you share your sorrow

Never once

.

Yet, I do know you were proud to live in your home country

I do know you left your family to go to battle

I do know it spared us from sorrow

Keeping the nightmare of war away

.

We, our families are grateful for  freedom,

the men, women, you, brother, sister, and our ancestry

lay before us

Unknowing what it took during those hours

.

We thank you for waking to a bomb-less morning

We thank you to the surrounding life of peace

Never once did you share your sorrow

Never once

.
