A Hero's Hero

VA Medical Center--Los Angeles, CA

So many soldiers living on the street,
their spirits broken with defeat.
What must they think when they look around,
see eyes pass them by, staring at the ground?
Does anger fill them when we turn away
from the debts we owe that should be repaid?
What, if at that moment, just once,
instead we saluted them with honor,
right hand to head?
To let them know they are not ghosts,
that we thank them for being braver than most.
If everyone would show them grace,
we just might find their pain erased.
For all the heroes still fighting to live,
and for heroes like you who continue to give,
if you see someone who is really lost,
please stop and remember what our freedom cost.
P.S. May their spirit and courage go on forever,
the heart eternal in the spirit of America.
