IUNVA  |  Honouring Caring Remembering

A Soldier

    I was one of those that others did not dare to be                                                                                                                                                                   
    I went where others feared to go
    And did what others failed to do                                         

    I asked nothing from those who gave nothing
    And reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness
    ...Should I fail

   I have seen the face of terror
   Felt the sting of fear
   And enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment's love

   I have cried, pained and hoped
   But most of all I have lived times
   That others would say are best forgotten

   At least now today
   I am able to say

  That I am proud of what I was

            .......A SOLDIER
