To A Soldier
By Zeb Stenman
Thank you for serving your country.
Men like you are freedom's only hope
When the darkness of tyranny threaten;
When the fire and brimstone of hate
Blast hot across the world.
Go now, Liberty's Champion
With the blessings of this humble poet
And join the ranks of heroes
Who gave what they must
So we could be free.
May every shot you make count;
May every action you take aid the cause of freedom
And may Heaven shield you
Until you return safe and whole
Into the arms of those who love you.
