A VETERAN'S PRAYER

by Greg Garland, Chef de Gare - Voiture 1601-40/8, Lake Dallas, Texas

Lord it gets harder

As time goes by,

It hurts to see another

Comrade die.

My heart plays taps

When each day is through

Though no one will hear it

But me and you.

So please hear my prayers

And keep our troops safe

And I pray for the enemy

Should I have to take one comrade's place.

 

TAPS:

Glen E. Kumfer - WWII Army Veteran
