Ten Years In The Making
On a cool September morning
when the Twin Towers would fall
while many Americans were in mourning
some answered the call.
That was ten years ago,
now our men and women
are finally coming back
from that sandbox in the Middle East
that they call Iraq.
The battle was tough,
the battle was long,
but they are the best of the best
and they have righted a wrong.
They come home with heavy hearts
with thoughts of their brothers and sisters
that they lost, they were fathers , sons, brothers,
mothers, sisters, daughters and wives
knowing that with their lives they may have to pay
'cause in a war that is the ultimate cost.
They missed holidays, and barbecues,
anniversaries and birthdays,
we owe them all so much
and in so many differant ways.
If you want to honor our soldiers
for everything that they do
when you see them ,
give them a handshake or a hug
and simply tell them " Thank-You!"
