United we Stand

February 21, 2008
By Whitney Ortgies, Eagle, NE

That’s what we said
We do what we can,
before we go to bed.

With American at war
And friends and loved ones are away
With our meaningful colors that soar;
we will wait for them to come home one day.

Holidays spent alone
Wishing that someone was there
All you do is sadly groan,
for this lonliness you cannot bear.

America can’t wait for this war to be done
For it’s every mothers dreams,
To finally hold her son.
We hope it’s closer than it seems.

Until then we will patiently wait
and sit in this freedom land,
Because we will stand to our promise.
United WE Stand.
