The Bugle Call
The Bugle CallGrowing up as children I said to my sons each night“Lights out boys, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite”Time to rest their heads, tomorrow again they’d playI knew they understood, it was the end of another dayBlessed with musical talents their lives had just begunPlaying musical instruments they had a barrel of fun Today I recall listening to my three sonsStaring straight at me my nineteen-year-old said Mom I’ve joined the Army becoming a soldier is my dream I want to serve my country and play the bugle tooOne day my son called home excitement in his voiceHe said Mom my practice paid off I was chosen to play ‘Taps’ Proud of his accomplishment the bugle he was going to playGiving a ‘lights out’ signal to the end of a soldier’s day Overlooking this glorious hillside white stones is all I see Soldiers who gave their lives so others could be freeI’ve lost my bugle player but a bugle I still hearRecognizing the melody I hear each note so clearA uniquely beautiful song with such a haunting callIts echoes linger in our hearts like the sounds of a waterfallIt takes about a minute for ‘Taps’ to be playedAsking for strength and courage I bowed my head and prayedMy young son plays his bugle with angels all aroundNow a soldier on the Lord’s team he’s playing beautiful soundsProudly serving his country he bravely gave his allPlaying his bugle in Heaven I can hear the Bugle Call
