thank you my vet


one memorial day
while driving about
a weekend radio voice said,
"if you love your freedom, thank a vet"

i can't now
one cold february night
mine passed away
history was lost

he was my teacher
he was strength
he was my dad
he was my vet

so now I thank
all that have served
all that have sacrificed
all that are our vets

God bless your loved ones
God bless your buddy's
God bless your country
God bless you my vet
