Dear Soldier - Poem by Alicia Meyers

Dear Soldier,
You're a good man,
Died for your country,
And everyone holds out a hand.

It's sad that you took a life,
For your people here at your home,
You made a promise to your wife,
That she's never alone.

They buried you with a flag,
Hats are all off of each man,
They respected you,
No matter if they didn't understand.

You made a choice,
To serve your country,
You spoke your voice,
To the land of the free.

Everyone remembers you,
Not because of where you came from or your face,
Not because of the name you held,
But because for courage that you'd embraced.

Dear Soldier,
'Tis was once that the war had begun,
You were ready for the blood shed when you were younger,
Now they shot a bullet in the sky from a gun.

Long lived the man who stood six feet tall,
And that he didn't runaway,
He was strong with courage and no fear,
Happy Memorial Day.
