An Ode to the American Soldier


Noemi Pina

An ode to all of our brave men and women
Serving our country.
Fighting for justice; fighting for us to remain free,
Proudly defending America, our very precious
Lady Liberty.

Our American soldiers left for the Middle East,
To fight terrorism - the man consuming beast.

And behind their families they left
Their friends, teachers, children - all of them, they left behind
But they keep them in their hearts - and
Even this, death cannot unbind.

Patiently, their loved ones await for their return
As they pray and yearn;
Their flame of hope in their hearts brightly burns,
With every passing day of news they learn.

An ode to our brave men and women,
Giving their all, giving their whole,
For a single great cause.
An ode to them our American soldiers!
