Patriotic Poem

“OUR NATIONS BEST”
by JIM PARROW
 

TO ALL WHO SERVED OUR COUNTRY, IN PEACETIME AND IN WAR
YOU’VE EARNED THE TITLE “VETERAN,” AND NEVER ASKED FOR MORE
YOU’VE EARNED OUR DEEP RESPECT AND ETERNAL ADMIRATION
YOU'RE TRULY SOMEONE SPECIAL, PRESERVING THIS GREAT NATION

YOU SACRIFICED AND SUFFERED, IN OH SO MANY WAYS
THE LIST IS LONG OF ALL YOU GAVE, SO WE’D HAVE PEACEFUL DAYS
FACING WAR AND UNTOLD HARDSHIPS, THAT WE WILL NEVER KNOW
YOU STEPPED UP AND SAID SEND ME, INTO BATTLE I WILL GO

WHEN TERROR AND INVASION, WERE TRULY REAL THREATS
YOU DONNED OUR NATIONS UNIFORM, MARCHING OFF WITH NO REGRETS
YOU SHOWED US YOU COULD HANDLE, ANY STORM THAT CAME YOUR WAY
WE OWE OUR FREEDOM AND OUR LIVES, TO EACH OF YOU TODAY

YOU TRULY ARE EXCEPTIONAL, YOU ARE OUR NATIONS TREASURE
WE OWE YOU ALL A DEBT, THAT NONE OF US CAN MEASURE
OUR GRATITUDE FOR ALL YOU’VE DONE, WE PROUDLY DO DECLARE
YOU HOLD A PLACE OF HONOR, IN OUR HEARTS OUR MINDS AND PRAYERS

WE OWE YOU ALL OUR FRIENDSHIP, OUR TENDER LOVE, AND CARE
YOU PAID THE PRICE AND FACED THE FOE, YOUR HEROE’S BEYOND COMPARE
YOU SERVED US ALL AND KEPT US SAFE, WORD’S CAN’T EXPRESS YOUR WORTH
THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU, YOU’RE THE VERY BEST ON EARTH
