My Last Set of Orders
I depart on my mission. to a new place.
Where flowers grow endless, with beauty and grace.
“Now I am free!”. As I shout it aloud.
To walk in green meadows, and soar among clouds.
No misery, no pain, no sadness, and grief.
Just serenity, my angel, my father, and peace.
My final orders. “Live Forever! And inherit the land.”
Not a terrorist in sight. or unwanted sand.
Walk the roads paved in gold.swim the powder blue lakes.
No flashes from warfare.only light from his face.
There’s a time for each person to join God and explore.
Well this is my time. and nothing quite more.
As the light hits my face.I kneel down, then I sigh.
Do you love me dear Jesus? And he said”Semper Fi!”

A HERO’S WELCOME
Time to come home dear brvother
Your tour of duty through
You’ve given as much as anyone
Could be expected to do
You have not failed your brothers
You clearly gave it all
And through your selfless actions
Others will hear the call
Just a few steps further
The smoke will start to clear
Others here will guide you
You have no need of fear
So take your place of honor
Among those who have gone before
And know you will be remembered
For now and evermore
