Veterans Day - November 11, 2001

Veterans Day
(c) November 11, 2001

A humble holiday
for those who fought and died
the Veterans of this land
to save our way of life

Just thinking of their loss
as rain is coming down
watching from my window
as flags wave sure and proud

For country they gave all
men with no regret
to trade their lives for freedom
of this we can't forget

And what of those who lived
with scars they wear with pride
we must shake their hands
and thank them for our life

The balance of our lives
is measured by blood shed
by those in uniform
of this you can depend

So remember on this day
the ones who keep us free
and say a little prayer
for future history
