A Salute to Veterans

A trembling hand salutes the flag
In the Veteran’s Day parade
Quivering lips whisper silent thanks
For the sacrifices made
Sometimes the pride of serving well…
Gives way to guilt of coming home
Sometimes its hard to figure out
Where life felt most alone
It’s OK the uniform no longer fits
It was always about honor and pride
But most just see an aging body
And miss the hero inside
