A SIMPLE THANK YOU
There is no time like the present
To thank you for the past
Deeds done so very long ago
Should be talked about at last.
Leaving all behind to serve in a war
That left you feeling down;
Finding your God and holding him tight
When no one else was around.
It was a “just cause” so let it be known
To anyone who begs to differ
Heart, body, and mind are quiet sometimes
Except for a soldier’s tear.
