Archives For Veterans Day

Thanks to all the soldiers past and present, here and gone who have sacrificed and continue to sacrifice their lives for our own.  And to their families I lend my heart for their losses and warmth for their generosity of lending their loved ones to us. Your pain must have been and I’m sure continues to be great. Thank you all for your honour and dedication to your country the place we all call home. Gratefully yours on this Veterans Day, Felina Silver Robinson

I’ll still be there when they’re gone©

When the curtain closes

When the TV screen turns to snow

When the theatre clears

When the drive-in has emptied

I’ll still be there when they’re gone

They bring life

They bring laughter

They bring sorrow

And still tomorrow

They’ll leave once the clock strikes at the top of the hour


I’ll still be there when they’re gone

You need not wonder

You need not cry

You need not tell them why

That I’m the only one that seems to care

Whether you come or whether you go

But no one else seems to know

That you, yourself are already gone

I Fight For You!©

By Felina Silver Robinson

A soldier makes a choice to sacrifice all for their country

Sleepless nights without their loved ones

Countless hours in the middle of nowhere

Uncertainty looming over every assignment

Fighting for freedom for all who deserve it

But are powerless to gain it

Protecting the land they call home

Often losing limbs or memories

But still willing to serve again

They’ll give anything to continue to defend their honour

And the glory of their country

We owe them so much

Our soldiers

Our warriors

Our heroes


Our defenders

Our protectors

Aid them in their time of need

Don’t leave them begging for all to see

When the need you

Give them your hand

When they see you

Don’t turn away

When they need your understand them

Hear what they say

A hero was not bred to say

I need you

But still yet

They will need you


Open your arms

Open your heart

Open your doors and receive them

Judgment free
