MAMA AND THE SOLDIER
As the light shines down on her made up face,
She's quick to realize everyone's in their place.
When the curtain rises and she takes her cue,
She sees the old soldier that's dressed in blue.
She's written a poem that comes from the heart,
And smiles at the old soldier who took a part.
He listens with sadness as she talks of the men,
That gave their lives way back then.
As she finishes a tear slides down his face,
Now she knows why Love brought her to this place.
As he pictures the faces of the boys that he knew,
He proudly remembers why he fought
For the Red, White, and Blue.
