A Hero's Welcome

You left unscathed and unharmed
You returned a bit shaken, battered, and wounded
You lived your life in constant fear of
Not knowing when or where the
Enemy might appear out of nowhere
To hurt and kill you and your comrades
Overshadows your dreams
Your dreams are about the war zone
That seem to haunt you on a daily basis
Sometimes insomnia reminds you
Of being on the battlefield
Regardless of the effects of war
Freedom is all that matters to you
Freedom is worth going to war for
Freedom is worth every bit of sacrifice and pain
For you, home is where your heart is
Hero, Welcome Home!
-- T. E. Brooks
