SISTER SOLDIER

You stood on the battlefield
with no man-made weapons
in your hands

You held GOD'S greatest weapon
called FAITH to help you stand

JESUS was your Commander
HE guided you everyday
HE ordered your footsteps
through your PRAYERS and FAITH

My SISTER SOLDIER
you stood proud with
your head held high
You fought the good fight
You fought for your life

My SISTER SOLDIER
you lost the war, but,
your battle was won

You received the highest Medal of Honor
All of us, hope, someday we will earn

Your Medal of Honor is the Key to Heaven
No more battles for you to fight

In Heaven, you have a new body,
a new soul, a new spirit
Your Badge of Courage is
Eternal Life

    Vienna, I agree with you. This applies to all woman, past, present and the unknown ones for the future.
