A Soldier

I got this from my friend, Ariman Mom.
 





A Soldier

There is discipline in A Soldier,
you can see it when he walk.

There is honor in A Soldier,
you hear it when he talks.

There is courage in A Soldier,
you can see it in his eyes.

There is loyalty in A Soldier
that he will not compromise.

There is something in A Soldier
that makes him stand apart,

There is strength in A Soldier
that beats from his heart.

A Soldier isn't a title any man
can be hired to do,

A Soldier is the soul of that man
buried deep inside of you.

A Soldier's job isn't finished
after an 8 hour day or a 40 hour week,

A Soldier is always A Soldier
even while he sleeps.

A Soldier serves his country first
and his life is left behind,

A Soldier has to sacrifice what
comes first in a civilian's mind.

If you are civilian -

I am saying this to you.....
next time you see A Soldier
remember what they do.

A Soldier is the reason our land
is 'Home of the free',

A Soldier is the one that is brave
protecting you and me.

If you are A Soldier -
I am saying this to you.....

Thank God for EVERY SOLDIER
Thank God for what YOU do!
