Their Sacrifice

(ABAB Quatrains with Refrain)

.

.
Replace a bloody bandage with fresh gauze,

This soldier has been wounded for our cause.

Then wipe a cool wet cloth across his face.

Tell him his pain-filled tears are no disgrace.

.
Let him know that we appreciate his sacrifice.

.
He knows his shattered leg can be replaced,

Bullet wounds eventually erased.

He can’t control the pain that never ends,

Remembering he lost his fighting friends.

.
Let him know that we appreciate their sacrifice.

.
