I Am Here!

I am here
for all I hold dear,
always there day and night,
a Beacon of shining Light
for all to see
what God meant Me
to be
through the action of many
brave ones from the days of fighting tyranny
that gave Me birth
to today who continue to protect My place on earth.

I am here
for all I hold dear
with resolve and no fear
through the efforts of so many great women and men,
who have always been and will remain
the reasons for... My proud name;
the waving of My red, white, and blue;
the singing of My anthem by you;
the majesty of Lady Liberty;
your Home of the Brave and Land of the Free;
your blessed, proud country . . . the USA...
that I pray
you will always be able to say!
