Voor mij Vader

God looked around His garden,
and found an empty place,
He then looked down upon this earth,
and saw your tired face.

He put His arms around you,
and lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best.

He knew that you were sufferinmg,
He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never,
Get well on earth again.

He saw the road was getting rough,
And the hills were hard to climb.
So He closed your weary eyelids and whispered,
“Peace Be Thine”

It broke our heart to lose you,
But you din’t go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories
Your love is stiil our guide.
And though we cannor see you,
You are always by our side.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

Miss you Dad !!!!!!!!!!

Respect

Respect is a lesson that everyone should learn.
Respect must be given before an expected return.

Respect is something that’s given for free.
Respect is about us and never about me.

Respect is the basis on which relationships are founded.
Respect is the anchor that keeps a person well grounded.

Respect builds the character and defines who we are.
Respect sets the standard and raises the bar.

Respect is magnanimous and helps to fulfil.
Respect is the partner that sits with good will.

Respect is like honey so sweet it’s perceived.
Respect a taste to savour for when it’s received .

On Veteran’s Day we honor

On Veteran’s Day we honor
Soldiers who protect our nation.
For their service as our warriors,
They deserve our admiration.

Some of them were drafted;
Some were volunteers;
For some it was just yesterday;
For some it’s been many years;

In the jungle or the desert,
On land or on the sea,
They did whatever was assigned
To produce a victory.

Some came back; some didn’t.
They defended us everywhere.
Some saw combat; some rode a desk;
All of them did their share.

No matter what the duty,
For low pay and little glory,
These soldiers gave up normal lives,
For duties mundane and gory.

Let every veteran be honored;
Don’t let politics get in the way.
Without them, freedom would have died;
What they did, we can’t repay.

We owe so much to them,
Who kept us safe from terror,
So when we see a uniform,
Let’s say “thank you” to every wearer.
