Celebrate Veterans

by BeasPeas

'More Opinions, Politics & Comments' - #31-401-B-C
Praise God each day for His saving grace
     which guards those leaving us here, bereft.
Heroes shipped off to a distant place,
     "It's our duty," they said before they left.

We struck a match, a candle glowed,
     to bless them in each situation.
The way back home, the bright beam showed,
     giving reason for celebration.

Veterans Day we cannot ignore,
     recognizing all that heroes do.
We thank those who served, the trials they bore,
     grateful God granted they made it through.

But families of countless others
     have endured a dreadful, painful loss.
We honor all our gallant brothers,
     who have sacrificed for freedom's cost.

Veterans Day Tribute contest entry

Thank you to all service men and women. You are the best of the best, not just on Veterans Day, but every day. My poem says "brothers" for rhyme's sake, but surely is meant to include women.
Thank you for reading my poetry.
