The Troops


WHAT TO SAY? WHAT TO SAY?


Someone wrote and asked me
Just what I had to say
About our Men and Women
We've sent into harms' way.

I don't know what, to say
I wish I could be profound
Wish, I could make each step they take
Be on, safe, protected, ground.

I wish I could, explain to them
Why they must fight this war
When sometimes, I even wonder
What, all the fighting's for.

Sometimes there are no answers
Except those, we each may find
When we think of wrong and right
What we know, in heart and mind.

Freedom isn't always perfect
And there's some will never know
What it takes to make it work
And to make humankind grow.

People who know the feeling
Of the threat, of its' loss
Know, there is nothing else
That is worth, that greatest cost.

When people fill those ranks
And march off to pave the way
Of that road to freedom
There's not much, we can say.

Except, "Thank you, and take care!
And we, who believe in you
Will keep you in our heart and mind
Until this battle's through."

No matter what some others say
And we must give them the "right"
Because it's for their Freedoms, too
That, you take up the fight.
