Here's to the Brave and the Bold

by Liberty Justice

Here's to the Brave and the Bold!

Here's to the families of the wounded and slain,
Children who fight battles just to maintain.
Husbands and wives who wait by sandy shores in vain.
Only to be given news that causes torture and pain.

Here's to the Brave and the Bold!

Yes, here's to the children who grow up bitter and all alone,
Not understanding the why's or reasons daddy's gone.
Here's to the men and women who fight wars on enemy's ground,
Lying in trenches, grenades, bombs blasting, planes crashing down.

Here's to the brave and the bold!

Here's to the brave and the bold,
Soldiers' stories of fierce heroes untold.
By land, air, or ocean--women and men protecting our great land,
Deceased; the living giving America a helping hand.

Here's to the brave and the bold!

Here's to the fallen soldiers, firefighters, law officials-- women and men.
War-torn warriors brave and bold who lost their lives to defend.
America thanks you for your great glowing sacrifice,
Weary wounded-the blood shed when you gave your lives.

Here's to the brave and the bold!

Just a little broken hearted girl way back then,
And didn't understand the twelve gun salute; and when,
the uniformed soldiers handed my mother a red, white and blue flag,
All I remember is my tear-stains on a soaked Air Force, Army or Marine red rag.

Here's to the brave and the bold!

May God Bless America and continue to keep us safe from harm!
May we never again suffer threats from terrorists triggering alarms.
May God keep America safe, protected and free,
Watching over the entire world and our allies across the sea.

Here's to the brave and the bold! May God Bless America and keep us safe from harm!

Amen! Amen! Amen!

Yes, This is my Memorable Tribute poem to our soldiers, veteran soldiers, firefighters and law officials who love and protect us.

I cried the entire time I wrote this poem, and the harder I cried, the faster I wrote. I wrote as I listened to my beloved country and western music and my rhythm and blues music.
