Prayer for Soldiers

By Tina Drakulich

Sing for joy at day break,

A father’s heart sours with joy at a child’s birth.

Live the day, celebrate the time!

Your minutes are not guaranteed, soldier;

As Jesus,

You will give sacrifice

Civilian, pilgrim, proletariat:

give thanks

ask forgiveness

share the spoil!

Live the day, celebrate the time!

Your minutes have been purchased.

Let the darkness of night remind,

Prayers you keep

for the soldiers

who lay life and liberty down for you;

whose blood is on our hands,

mine and yours.

P.S. You can hear The Nevada Veterans Writers Group read their work on Veterans Day at Sundance Books on California Ave. in Reno from 6:30 t0 8:00
