THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE

Thank you for your service
Thank you for teaching our children
Thank you for giving them numbers, letters
And windows to far away worlds

Thank you for your service
Thank you for nursing us
For giving us shots and carrying bed pans
For holding our hands when we sat by the bedside crying

Thank you for your service
Thank you for the harvest
For the farms and orchards that feed us
For your strong arms that carry the baskets
Turn the wheels, spread the seed

Thank you to the second responders
And the third and the fourth
Those who love In a practical way
Day after day

Thank you to the renegades
To those who refused
And to those who left as weapons of war
But came back fighting for peace
Thank you for your courage
Thank you for the truth
