We Honor Your Spirit

by krys123

Within your hands a child is lost it seems,
 and you begin to hold this child's pure life
 with tenderness and love you hold her dreams
 that seems to slowly strip away her strife.

What brings compassion to this empty place,
 where bombs and rifle shots are all around.
 You have some chocolate that smiles her face,
 and that instant moment you stop her frown.

 Your valiant hopes for truth and faith are clear,
 it's placed in armor which should keep you safe,
but truly not protect you from your fear,
yet your empathy's written on your face.

You're soldier trained but re'lly just a man,
 that offered services abroad at will.
Your honor is what makes us understand,
that you are both hard and soft even still.

It's just an honor knowing you are there
 giving your all no matter what the cost.
You are in our hearts as if you're home here,
for loving thoughts of you are never lost.

Please know that you are always on our minds
for always and within a hopeful thought,
and when reading this I hope we're entwined
forever that together we are sought.
