THE PRICE OF PEACE
As the last glow of Sunset is fading away,
lights of the town twinkle like stars.
It's an island of peace in a troubled day.
Dusk hides the pain and the scars.
There's a drone on the highway flowing along.
A sound grown familiar with years,
like the undertone of an ageless song,
surviving life's sorrows and fears.
I feel close to the loved ones I've known,
though some are no longer here.
Like songbirds in Autumn, they've flown.
But it seems I can feel them near.
Dusk settles peaceful, it's hard to believe,
still in this world, so many grieve.
And the Soldier pays the price of Peace.
From the Arc of the Heavens, do some look on ?
Do they care that sorrow lives here ?
Are we on the way from darkness to Dawn ?
Will we someday be with those we hold dear ?
The last glow of Sunset has faded away.
Lights of the town twinkle like stars.
Nature finds peace at the close of the day.
And somewhere the brave fight the wars.
This scrap of peace that we cling to now,
is won and saved by those who fight.
Thanks to the brave who take the vow,
to guard our Freedom's Light.
There is a cost, but they believe
there'll come a day when none will grieve.
And the Soldier won't pay the price of Peace.
