  3. A Soldier Died Alone

    battle rages on, bombing veils the rising sun.
    A boy not yet a man holds a picture to his heart
    of loved ones not forgotten though oceans keep them apart.

    Waves lap against our boat
    As we wait in the cold.
    Wrap ourselves in our coat,

    I pledge allegiance to the American Flag; forever may she wave.
    God bless those covered with her as they're lowered to their grave.

    and the soldiers that protect us in our darkest hour.

    A Forgotten Veteran

    Driving home one day after hours of monotonous office work,
    Saw a man sitting by the road; looked as one down on his luck.
    Paid small notice to the figure; my lonely life was in a rut.
    He was just another beggar holding out a shiny tin cup.

    Somewhere among the clouds above;

    Those that I guard I do not love;

    Turmoil covers my eyes and my heart.
    It never leaves me in day or dark.
