My Flag Awaits

My Flag Awaits…. 
  
Here I lay 
My flag awaits 
To embrace my final stand 
  
I gave my life 
For my family, my wife 
My country, and fellow man 
  
Don’t cry for me 
I’m proud—I’m free 
And gave everything I had 
  
I answered the call 
To protect you all 
And would do it all again 
  
I swell with pride 
To know I’ve died 
In giving life for what I love 
  
I’m going home 
But you’re not alone 
I’ll protect you from above 
  
My mission is clear 
As I leave you here 
And join my fallen brothers

Duty calls
I'm standing tall
As I join the ranks of another

I'm in God's army now,
MORE brave, MORE proud
As I wait for His command

I'm here with you
To guide you through
And forever hold your hand...


This poem is written by a soldier to honor all of those who so selflessly give of themselves everyday!
