A Soldiers Prayer

It's time to sleep
I've been relieved
My rifle at my side
My knife in its sheath
Lord let me live another day
As I put myself in harms way
I made my choice, I took the oath
I stand for freedom, but I don't boast
My God, my country, my family
The things I hold so dear
With these all on my side
There's nothing for me to fear
But I should fall before my next relief
I will stand before you Lord with honor and dignity
So while I'm here please make me strong
To fight the battles and right what's wrong.
God Bless America

I wrote this poem for my daughter, after she joined the marine corps. She used to write poems while growing up, so I wanted to give her something she could relate to as well as honor all of our armed services.
