Tribute To Our Heroes 144: As The Year Fades

As the year fades and closes and memory beckons us, come...

and we look forward to our New Year, with or without those we love...

And someday we'll have them wrapped up in our arms...

although that someday may ne're be

its comfort holds its charms.

 

Looking forward has its hardships

as history's lessons have taught

And when we look forward,

our backward calls us, too.

It bids us to remember

what we have learned from it

and to consider our futures

in hindsight's sight well lit.

 

Look forward now with caution,

and to the past return

for the lessons learned there,

let education not be spurned.

A space program is gone now,

and ne'er to be replaced

We should learn from our past beliefs,

and listen to our mistakes.

 

GOD Bless You, Our Heroes,

each and every one,

and know that we love you,

Mothers, fathers, sons.

But don't rely on promises

that others have begun

to give you for your future,

It's not up to that one.

 

For America you fought bravely,

Your service strong and true,

unfortunately he failed,

everyone, even you.

So prepare to continue

the fight that once began,

will e'er be continued,

against false promises of a man.
