Happy Memorial Day

I posted this last year for Memorial Day, but I wanted to share it again this year. Never forget: some gave all. Thank you to all our Vets: current, past and fallen.

Edge of Reality

Once Upon a Soldier

 

Once upon a soldier,

In a freedom-governed land

With liberty and justice

For all of those who stand

Upon the golden shores they’re offered

By other soldiers’ hands,

A call was laid.

 

Once upon a soldier,

In a far and desperate land,

Surrounded by the enemy

And miles of burning sand,

With fallen comrades ’round him

And another thwarted plan,

Dark fear was laid.

 

Once upon a soldier,

In a military land,

Surrounded by the men and women

Rescued by his hand,

And, by his brave and selfless actions,

Granted one more chance to stand,

A badge was laid.

 

Once upon a soldier,

In a proud memorial land,

With 21 guns sounding off,

Saluting his last stand,

His quiet strength now silenced

By the enemy’s dark hand,

A flag was laid.

– S.D, Bullard
