Independence Remembered

by Robert Daniel Long   Nov 1, 2010


Called
To serve
Called
To give
Trained
To protect
Those who can't

Give
All we have
Ask
Nothing in return
To live in peace
Is all our hearts yearn

It's duty
And respect
For the jobs we do
Though sometimes deadly
We see
Every job through

Hoping
That one day with honor
Before you to stand
Proud to have served
The nation we have

Even
In death
Which sometimes occurs
Our lives
For our nation
We will not
Refuse
For the price
For freedom
Is sometimes hard
The thing we stand for
Will not be marred

Sworn
To stand
Sworn
To defend
Our independence and freedom
Our land
It's
Our call
Our duty
To the country
In which we live

And to you
