The way I spent a day.

At the Veterans Hospital, is the way I spent my day
Most times I refer to it as just the plain VA.
There is nothing plain about it, I can truly say,
They always help me out, If there is a way.

My Physician is a lady the best that you will see,
Finding out exactly what is wrong with me.
I’ve had her as a Doctor for over nineteen years,
Treats my physical problems and calms away my fears.

Always asks about the family, has ever been so very kind,
More than a Doctor, she’s a friend here in my mind.
About the entire hospital, I really should say more,
It is the best place I’ve been treated, of that I am sure.

Meeting other Veterans there, to talk to them is great
For themselves most feel no sorrow, consider it was fate.
Coming up the drive, many choose a bit to lag,
Each side of the road, every few feet is our Flag.

All the people that I talked to agreed that war is no fun,
Still they were proud to be Veterans, each, and every one.
I drove a hundred miles but it was worth the ride,
What I heard from others, reflected my own pride.

When I listened, to what Veterans had to say,
About their own feelings, on this Independence Day.


Entry for
Of course there's a Veterans Day - EVERY DAY!
