~ In The Name Of Country ~

Today as I looked out my patio
I saw a beautiful sunset
All golden, overlapping the blue
I wondered, in all the glorious things
Why there cannot be peace
To see in our world

In the name of country
Let freedom ring above the pain
Can we remove this terrorism
To not fear flying once again
Or walk into our cities, our tall buildings
That may have bombs calling for our name

We live in a land longing for world peace
I saw a picture today
Of our soldiers far away
They seemed so tired as they walked
In the sandy desert, hot every day

Their uniforms covered in dust
Downcast, a lonesome look
Oh may peace come to earth
Let it begin in me, for another's good

How can we tell people
Who have never known of freedom's call
Hungry, not just for food
But for peace above all

Will they ever see the peace that we know
Will terrorists stop fighting their fellow man
For a God they do not understand
Of a different land

Let us pray for our soldiers, in the bright sun
May they soon come home, everyone
In the name of our country, together let us stand
With freedom to hold everyone's hand
God protect us in The USA
For we will always seek to live
The American way.

Linda Ann Henry 2006
Do you remember me
The people's poet

For our soldiers who have fallen
and have lost their lives.
