Taken Life Of An Unknown Soldier

You have fought
Gave your time
Never to be forgot
You never made a crime

You are gone
But we knew you were there
Up until dawn
Watching the bloody scare

Families and friends left behind
Trying to protect them and the land
By putting your life on the line
Always under command

Not wanting a reward
Wanting to just care for everyone
Not even wanting an award
Worrying that you may be alone

So next time someone tells me
It is a free country
I will let them know it is not

It is not because the price was paid
By the taken life of an unknown soldier
