My Valentine Heroes


America has always had heroes and, on this Valentineís Day,

Iíd like to make it personal ~ to say in my own way

That I consider every one who serves their countryís call

A hero or a heroine. I salute them, one and all.



My heart breaks for their families when they canít come to call

And bring a dozen roses for their loves, however small;

A sweetheart, wife or husband ~ a child, mother or dad

Who know this oneís the sweetest one the world has ever had.



I call them all my Valentines and hope they understand

I love the families that give so much to save this freedom land.

My hat is off, my heart is touched, and I want them all to know

That there are many millions more whoíd like to tell them so.



A letter or a phone call cannot take the place of flesh

And pictures on the TV, full of camouflaging mesh,

Only intensify the ardor of the prayers we kneel and say;

Forgetting not to pray them safety each and every day.



The sweetest Valentines I know are ringing Freedomís bell,

The bravest souls my heart can praise, I canít begin to tell ~

The dearest sons and daughters, standing in harms way,

Deserve the highest praise and prayers from all of; us each day.
