Those That Served For Me – Lyric-Poem

Read about two brothers today who served in Europe and the South Pacific.
Their vows of silence told me all I needed to know.
And the man who fought in Korea,
He said, ‘Son, the horrors, you have no idea.’

Why do so many good people have to die so young?
Why are there so many heroes that are unsung?
If I could, I’d write each one a letter
In a tribute to those that served for me.

I talked to a friend of mine just the other day
Who served in a land called Vietnam.
Told his story and then he cried
When he got to the part where his best friend died.

Why do so many good people have to die so young?
Why are there so many heroes that are unsung?
If I could, I’d write each one a letter
In a tribute to those that served for me.

Saw my friend’s mother just the other day.
She still carries around the scars of Desert Storm.
And that high school couple that served in Iraq and Afghanistan,
Who knows how many they saved by making a stand?

We ask where all of the heroes have gone,
When they are right in front of us.
Each and every person
Has a special story to be told.

Why do so many good people have to die so young?
Why are there so many heroes that are unsung?
If I could, I’d write each one a letter
In a tribute to those that served for me.
