The Faithful Friend in Battle

May 11, 2010
Dedicated to July 4
When a soldier is almost given up hope he sees,
The Faithful “Friend.”
It lightens his spirit and he stands strong and proud.
On the battle field he tells others to look,
At America’s Faithful “Friend.”
The soldier still fights for his country and knows his life is at stake,
But loves his country too much to quit now.
Again on the field the soldier loses hope,
When he looks at America’s “Friend” it is different.
It was falling and many other soldiers were giving up.
Quickly he sprang to his feet and stood the “Friend” again.
The soldier steps back and looks at his “Friend”.
Though torn, it stood proud waving its red white and blue.
Soldiers rose and saluted it honorably.
They gained more hope and thanked,
America’s “Friend”.
