Walls


Guarding the walls of your every freedom they stand
across lines and borders into many a distant land
from each advance to destroy your liberty they perservere
both far away and those who are right here

Standing on the walls protecting all you hold dear
the lines of freedom both far and near
through all assaults they protect and defend
never breaking but sometimes they bend

The walls they guard surround you with peace
each one of you from the powerful to the very least
they make no distinction they protect one and all
always they stand and sometimes they fall

The walls they stand on are covered by sacrifices in the past
the blood they shed isn’t the first it won’t be the last
every moment they hold fast both the living and the dead
honor them now those who fight and those who bled

The walls remain standing for you at each sun rise
shining across rows where those who sacrificed lie
watching as ever those brave those true
ever guarding the walls of freedom for me and for you
