As I read thy name
and contemplate your leave,
I realize how much you sacrifice
in order that I may achieve.
You gave your life and dreams
to a country in turmoil and strife.
You fought for our sake night and day,
while so many could only wish and pray.
I can't imagine what grief it must have caused all those,
whom you were always loved by,
as they waited close by the phone
with a brave tear in their eye.
You have served us well
and made me proud to know
that there are such brave ones
who fight for my freedom liek so.
