My Silent Hero

2 Timothy 1:12
“That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet I am not ashamed, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him for that day.” NIV

You are my silent hero
I know not what you did
All I know is that you served
And your suffering silently hid

May God give you peace of mind
Throughout each day you live
May He wrap you in His love and care
And comfort through His presence give

I thank you for your service
To keep us secure and free
I know it was very hard for you
And in your mind you still see

The stories of war are ever present
Never far from a soldier’s mind
Just know I pray for you
And respect these emotions I find

You carry chapters within your mind
And history within your heart
Things we only read about
You knew from the very start

I want to express my gratitude
For the sacrifice you made
You did not suffer needlessly
For I have my freedom today

Every American that walks the streets
And goes to church to pray
Has you to thank my soldier friends
Who silently suffer today
