For all the soldiers and veterans out there
All I can do is thank you for keeping my country free
All I can do is say “God bless you,” is that enough for what you have done for me?
All I can do is shake your hand and admire your strength and pride
All I can do is to never leave you in my support that I’ll never hide
I stand for the National Anthem and proudly place my hand on my heart
Is it enough that I’ll bleed for my country and never tear her apart?
I proudly took the opportunity to pay my respects to the moving wall
I cried for those who never came home, I cry for one and all
I have 57 years as a civilian watching a war that’s on TV
I know I’ll never understand all the hell that you soldiers see
All I can do is write my words to show my support and care
God bless you, my prayers to you for all the soldiers and veterans out there
