To My Favorite Vet

To My Favorite Vet


To my favorite vet
On Veteran’s day
I salute you

the captain of my soul
the major of my life
my one and only wife

Who chose to serve
Your adopted home land
So many years ago

It seems like yesterday
When you put on the uniform
And began decades of service

And I followed you
To the ends of the world
Just to be by your side

As you answered
The call of service
To make the world
A better place
For having been there

And now as time goes by
Our memoires begin to fade
But they can’t take that away
From you

For you served your country
And will forever be my hero
And our national treasure
