Veteran's Sacrifice

Dedicated Lovingly to Troy's and My Grandfather's who were Veteran's. A veteran’s sacrifice, Is that they might not see their family, That they care about, That they love, That they miss with every breathe, And beat of their heart, All for our freedom, All for their freedom, All for the country, That has depended on them, They rise up from many walks, Of life, They are different people, From different backgrounds, And different thoughts, But they all serve for the same reason, And this veteran’s sacrifice, Is for our freedom, Freedom from hundreds of years ago, When people took a stand, On what they believed in, They took arms, Those husbands, Brothers, Uncles, Fathers, Sons, And now we see, Wives, Mothers, Sisters, Aunts, Daughters, Today we want to honor you, Thank you, Appreciate you, Give you the gratitude you lovingly deserve, Because this moment, This day, And in all other days, We want

Another View

Larger Field

Walking among nature’s path, I come across a larger field, A field vast and wide, With a little blue lake off the distance, Tall grass, Willows, Big giant green trees, Clear blue sky, As the sun touches everything, Wildlife all around, Even though most are hidden, This place I have come to, These places that nature has lead me to, I stand there quietly, Stand there looking out, Taking in everything, As I look out to the sky, To the trees, To the water, To the grass, And everything else around, I appreciate it at that moment, Thanking Him for all there is around, Taking in the beauty, Stopping for that moment, And stand in that larger field, For a moment, And feel rested, And renewed, By standing there, In that field, And taking in all He gave, For us to enjoy, And to take moments for, In our lives.
