Faraway Heros


To the Faraway Heroes,

I salute you

You fill my heart with pride,

And with sadness.

The pride is for your courage,

The sadness for your distance.

How little we ever say.

How much we really feel.

The distance is so great,

But you are ever near.

Never forget that we care,

We worry,

And we grieve.

We fear for your safety,

Your wellbeing.

For you are a part of us

A vital part.

The distance will never be so great

That we forget

The sons and daughters of Canada

For only together

Are we one.

poppy    This is for the soldiers everywhere, from all countries:  we will not forget!

    Your sentiments were exactly what I was feeling yesterday while watching the broadcast on the CBC. Beautiful words and beautiful thoughts. So many sacrifices, yet so many blessings. Thanks for this. 🙂
