The Fallen by Andrea Senter

“The Fallen”
Written by: Andrea Senter

 

 

They never thought when they left here
their families they?d see no more
No one dares to think about
The high price of such a war

If you asked them why they did it
They?d say because it was right
Someone has to stand up sometimes
And someone has to fight.

A world away they defend our cause,
as we tuck our kids in bed.
Some give all for all of us,
And somewhere tears will be shed

They do not ask for fame or fortune
Just that we recognize
We are all here, free, today,
Because the fallen have paid the price.
