SOLDIER’S ANGEL

MY HALO MAY BE CROOKED
AND DENTED HERE AND THERE
BUT THE GLOW GOES UNTARNISHED
AND REACHES OUT TO SHARE.

NONE OF US IS PERFECT
NO, NOT ME OR YOU
BUT UNITED WE WILL STAND
FOR OUR RED, WHITE, AND BLUE

YOU KNOW I MAY BE TIRED
BROKE AND TROUBLED TOO
BUT ALL OF THAT IS NOTHING
TO WHAT THEY’RE GOING THROUGH

THEY KNOW I GIVE MY ALL
TO COMFORT THEM AND THEIRS
WITH LETTERS, GIFTS UNENDING
OR JUST MY LOVING PRAYERS

FOR I BELIEVE IN THEM
AND AM GRATEFUL FOR THEM TOO
AND I WANT THEM TO KNOW IT
AS THEY SAY AND DO

AND WHEN THEY FINALLY REACH US
UPON OUR GOLDEN SHORE
WE SHOULD BE THERE TO GREET THEM
AND ASK OF THEM NO MORE

AS THEY HAVE SERVED WITH HONOR
AND GIVEN US THEIR BEST
HOW CAN WE WHO STAYED HERE
HONOR THEM WITH LESS

AND SO I BEG OF YOU
TO JOIN ME REAL SOON
AND WEAR A SHINING HALO
IN OUR GRATITUDE

OUR MOTTO IS SO EASY
TO LEARN, TO SAY, TO KEEP
“LET NO SOLDIER GO UNLOVED”
FROM THE ANGEL’S WELL SO DEEP

PLUS SHOW ON EVERY FRIDAY
YOUR LOVE, SUPPORT AND TRUST
BY WEARING RED IN HONOR
OF THOSE WHO BLED FOR US.

–Jeanne Luttrall
