Honoring Veterans’ Day

11 Nov

Honoring Veterans' Day

I would like to thank all the men and women in the armed forces past and present. I believe there’s a special place in Heaven for all those who sacrificed themselves to make better the lives of others. I would like to also give gratitude to the soldiers’ families. I have featured this poem before, but it seemed suitable for today. Enjoy.

Veterans' Day

Remember the day I borrowed your brand new car and dented it?
I thought you’d kill me, but you didn’t.

And remember the time I dragged you to the beach, and you said it would rain, and it did?
I thought you’d say, “I told you so.” But you didn’t.

Do you remember the time I flirted with all the guys to make you jealous, and you were?
I thought you’d leave, but you didn’t.

Do you recall the time I spilled strawberry pie all over your car rug?
I thought you’d hit me, but you didn’t.

And remember the time I forgot to tell you the dance was formal and you showed up in jeans?
I thought you’d drop me, but you didn’t.

Yes, there were lots of things you didn’t do.
But you put up with me, and loved me, and protected me.

There are lots of things I wanted to make up to you
when you returned from Iraq.

But you didn’t.
