God gives us a new Independence Day each year,
Remembering all of our troops so far and near,
So many have given their lives so gracefully,
So all of us can live in freedom peacefully.
God sends the wounded and lame to come home,
To their parents, wives, children and so on,
As the mountains are around Jerusalem,
So the Lord is around His people forever.
Each and every prayer that a Mother prays,
Is especially sent to the Father right away,
She prays, “Dear God watch over my child,”
It’s been so long since I’ve seen his smile.
This war has taken so many lives, you see,
And I need my son to be returned to me,
Since a baby I have dedicated his life to You,
And how his little heartbeat was only for You.
Now that he is grown and understands,
That all the wars were started by man,
I have taught him about God’s grace,
Thank you God for keeping him out,
Of harms way.

I have been writing Christian Poetry for most of my life. It is something that I enjoy doing for God. I write about God and His love for us. I also write about Jesus and how He gave His life for all.
