God bless our brave soldiers
wherever they are
be it home, on leave
or serving in fields afar.

Mere thank-you's do lack
the true gratitude we feel
unable to fully convey
what our hearts don't reveal.

But how do you thank those
who put their lives on the line
in seemingly endless,
and often deadly rhyme?

Sure, you can pump their palms
give them bear hugs, too,
but are these enough to show
how much they mean to you?

Pray tell, where would we be
if they should ignore the call
by this nation under God
with liberty and justice for all?

You can search the world over
but will find merely a few
willing to risk their lives
for what our forefathers knew.

Some kings are just clueless
on the right path to choose
thus more reason than not
to challenge their views.

With one eye toward Heaven
the other on a bush somewhere
soldiers get stuck in the middle
on this board of life unfair.

So, dig deep into your hearts,
thank them for doing your job
for there go both you and I
except for the grace of God.

Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed 1st July in Afghanistan ... RIP ...

My sincere condolences to his family at this sad time .....

We bid farewell to family and friends,
In hope that someday we'll live as brothers.
I pray for the day all wars will end,
and my fate shall be spared to others.

It was the war to end all wars,
That is what they had said.
After all these years,
Britain still counts her dead.

I was a true Britain,
I wish you could see,
All I ask is,
Remember Me.

In war I fought and died,
I thought it did cease.
Now under the Blue Beret,
I die for World Peace.

Like Civilians, Sailors and Airmen
Plus the thousands of soldiers before.
On the11th November Remember
I died for Peace not War.

I was a true Britain,
I wish you could see.
All I ask is,
Remember Me ..........

Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed today in Afghanistan ... RIP ...
My sincere condolences to his family at this sad time .....

He didn't do it for the money or even the fame,
He just didn't want to die in vain,
He prayed that future generations remembered his name,
he lost his life for strangers he had never met before,
He was willing to sacrifice himself for the family next door,
We hear all this talk about how these soldiers die,
Think it's a father to a kid or a husband to a wife,
He stood tall like a tree and hard like a bolder,
All I ask is for you to remember the soldier

Dedicated to the brave soldier who died today from injuries sustained in Afghanistan ... RIP ...

My sincere condolences to his family at this sad time .....

The morning paper
Held familiar news of
Another soldier
Sacrificed…
A burnt offering on
The altar of war.

Another one gone.

Like seconds on a clock,
Each one lost
Is gone forever,
Never to be regained.

Such a loss means
One less bouquet of roses,
No more teddy bears, and
Silenced pillow talk.

Another one gone.

Some flags wave high above
Ribbon-adorned trees,
While others tuck in
Those who sleep for eternity.

Public speeches stir up
Conflicts of support and dissent;
Private mourning fuels
A forever-altered normality
For those left behind.

Another one gone,
Though never forgotten,
Despite the endless names
Flowing like rivers
Past the gate of eternity.

Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed today in Afghanistan ... RIP ...
My sincere condolences to his family at this sad time .....

Invictus
(written by William Ernest Henley)

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeoning of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Soldiers given up their lives
To fight the fight,
Guard our shores and do what's right.
Leave loved one's young and old
Fight in the rain, snow or cold
Not for fame, glory or a crown.
They can't let anything get them down.
They fight for those they hold dear
Bravely going places they've never been.
Seeing things no man, woman or child should
Ever see.
The brave one's fighting
Because who promised freedom was ever free.

Dedicated to the 3 brave soldiers who were killed today in Afghanistan ... RIP ...
My sincere condolences to their families at this sad time .....

I lie wrapped in folds of armour plate
within my home as grey as slate
I'm far away from land and shore
in peaceful sleep on a man of war
Come light of Day and morning sun
I'll check the functions of my gun
I'll check the Point and then the Train
and then I'll check it all again
For that's the gun that let's me sleep
and keeps me from a grave so deep
I'm now asleep, my mind at peace
but will my battles never cease ?
The years have gone, the gun is rust
so many friends are now just dust
But they are never far from me
although some sleep beneath the sea
For them no songs are ever sung
but they will be forever young
Friends and relations shed their tears
forgotten now these many years
But some of us remember still
remember them, and always will
I ask them now for my release
or will my battles never cease

If my days were untroubled and my heart always light,
Would I seek that fair land where there is no night?
If I never grew weary with the weight of my load,
Would I seek for God’s peace at the end of the road?

If I never knew sickness and never felt pain,
Would I search for a hand to help and sustain?
If I walked without sorrow and lived without loss
Would my soul seek solace at the foot of the cross?

If all I desired was mine day by day,
Would I kneel before God and earnestly pray?
If God sent no winter to freeze me with fear,
Would I yearn for the warmth of spring every year?

I ask myself these and the answer is plain,
If my life were pleasure and I never knew pain -
I’d seek God less often and need him much less,
For God is sought more often in times of distress.

And no one knows God or sees him as plain -
As those who have met him on the "Pathway of Pain"

In testament of old and new,
the love of God is spoken true.
Within my hands the Bible rests,
I bow in prayer with my requests.

My prayer is not for me this day,
lt is for our troops so far away.
I ask of You, protect and shield,
our soldiers on the batttlefield.

Be it man, woman, black or white,
give comfort as they fall this night.
Lord take them home if you must,
for all mankind returns to dust.

Take away the pain, give relief,
help loved ones with their grief.
Heavenly Father as I pray to You,
protect our soldiers in all they do.

Lord as you have in wars of past,
let them know they're home at last.
No death is not finality,
if we believe in eternity.

Dedicated to the two brave soldiers who were killed yesterday in Afghanistan ... RIP ...
My sincere condolences to their families at this sad time .....

Remember me as I walk away for you I lived and died this day
And in this moment I can recall that as I fell I still stood tall
Into the falling night I cry tell them I love them and tell them why
I am not there to see them grow or curb the wild oats they sow
I am the one with arms held wide even in death not steeping aside
For God and country I am here your pain I hold I feel your fear
Freedom is my gift to you as I left, this price I knew 
I am so cold and so afraid and as the fear begins to fade 
I think of those to follow me to give their lives to liberty
As I taste deaths' embrace I pray for strength and a bit of grace
Let me die as I have lived leaving nothing to forgive
My eyes are heavy let me rest I know now I have done my best.

Dedicated to the brave soldier who died today from the wounds he sustained in Afghanistan ...RIP...

My sincere condolences to his family at this sad time .....
