A Life Given

A live given in service
And in protection of those
Who stayed home
That life has made
The ultimate sacrifice
Paid the price for
The freedoms of those
Of us left behind
Protected by the lives
Of those who fight
Those who serve
Knowing they may
Not ever come back home.
Thank you for all
That you have given
Thank you to those
Who offered your lives
Thank you to those
Who gave your lives
Thank you isn’t enough
To begin to express
Gratitude for all that
They have given
For those lives
Both given and reshaped
By the act of service
