~~“I raise my
hands and bow my head,
more and more truth written
In the letters
in red. They tell me there’s
life than I can see
Growing up, a wide eyed boy sitting
on Grandpa's knees
I'd listen to his stories of how he
came to believe
He proudly served in the big war,
and very often asked, "Why did I
Then look up to the sky and bow his
head and pray.
He'd talk of men, I'd never know
and tell me how, "Because of them..
Your grandpa's still alive".
He handed me a Book, and gave me
just one task.
Read this book, pay attention to the
words in red, and grow up to be a
Summers came and went and I
grew to be the man I am.
Grandpa's gone, and I've grown
To share the stories in the Book,
with my grandson
Grateful for the lessons, I share it as
Grandpa would have done.
