Thank you For Your Service


Thank You for Your Service
 
Some times I think we take for granted
All the things we have been handed.
We have forgotten all the men
Who gave there lives and would again
 
I walk the streets and take a stand
Any where throughout the land
I speak my mind and say my peace
I pray these freedoms never cease
 
For all the things I say and do
I assume are rights, we all do
Yet all these things we have and say
Could go away any day
 
If not for you and your bravery
I shudder at the thought of slavery
Your sacrifice has kept us free
To be all that we wish to be
 
It breaks my heart to watch the few
Who say that they never knew
The sacrifice you chose to make
For us and for our country’s sake
 
The time has come to step up and say
Thank you for protecting our way
For being willing to pay the price
For giving the ultimate sacrifice
 
Now I shall do my best to say
Thank you all in my own way
Even though words do not come
Easily they should be welcome
 
Thank you for our freedom
Thank you for our safety
Thank you for your service
Thank you for your sacrifice
