Soldiers

A country with patriotic men and women
Is as precious as treasure.
Most times they make choices others won't.
Serving as protectors is their main call.
They leave family and loved ones behind.
In spite of the anguish endured because
Of separation, they stand strong to the call.
They defend, protect and serve at all costs.
Even to the point of losing their lives.
These precious men and women should
Always be remembered and honored for their
Selfless sacrifices.
Many return home not as they left.
If there's one thing they hardly regret,
It is being a soldier.
A nation will always be praying for them.
They will always be looking out for
Their loved ones left behind.
