Our American Soldiers

To all of our soldiers
Here and abroad
Your bravery is seen
And honored by all
Your caring touch 
To the people you free
Your scornful punishment
To those who deceive
You’re doing your duty
You’re fighting with pride
Defending a people 
Who know not how to survive
All the small children
With eyes so bright
Look at you
Understanding not why you fight
The freedom you bring them
Comes with a price
So many American soldiers
Have given their lives
Is a life for freedom 
And even exchange
Another countries freedom
And American family’s pain
For the loss of their loved ones
Who died in a fight
A memory they will live with
All of their lives
Our county was built 
With honor and pride
Without our brave soldiers
We would never survive
To Our American Soldiers
Alive and gone
Your love, life and honor
Will always live strong

To all of out American soldiers who are fighting, have fought or died in the war in Iraq,
Afghanistan or anywhere else. Remember you are loved and are being prayed for by loved
ones, friends and strangers. May God watch over you all and protect you and bring you home
safe to your loved ones arms.
