A Vet Remembers
Warm sun beckons me - come and play.
A breeze the flag unfolds.
Across my town, a bugle sounds
As the drumbeat slowly rolls.
I love this day when life is good
And blessings come in twos
But I will not turn to food and fun
Until I've paid my dues.
For I am a veteran of war long past
And I will not forget.
About brave friends now dead and gone
Whose memories linger yet.
For unlike me they never heard
Their babies cry or laugh.
They never saw their sweetheart's smile
Nor lifted life's full glass.
So, again today, I honor them
And remember every one.
I pause to thank my God again
For all that they have done.
And now I ask that you would pause
Before the beach or mall,
And join me in my slow salute
To those who gave their all.
