Ultimate Price

Ultimate Price

From the first time we met we were friends
Sharing many firsts along the way
First crush, first kiss, first dance
Everyone seemed to know that we were linking at the heart
I guess it was apparent to all but us from the start
High School, with homecoming and its proms
Left us dreaming of what was to come

Not long after graduation day
Came a wonderful wedding day
Not long after that a little girl
With eyes of blue just like you,
But money was tight and college a dream
So the military offered a glimmer of hope, of better things

You were so proud in your dress blues
Helping others, paying your dues
But in a far away land
Something went terribly wrong
Trying to help those who could not, help themselves
You paid the ultimate price
And the link was broken on that night

So as I stand here today
Tears running down, staining my face
I know you are now in a better place
Though I wish you were here with us today
Just one more time to feel your warm embrace
Instead of the cold of stone against my face
Fairy's and Dragons are real, if you believe.

No it's not a true story least not for me. However I'm certain to a number of people it is true. I read the new yesterday and just felt inspired to write this so I did.
