Now I Know

There once was a time

That I resented it.

There once was a time

That I hated it.

But now I know,

Yes I know,

That my father,

My brave father,

Did it for our country.

Now I know

It is to be honored.

Now I know

It is to be revered.

Now I am proud to say,

"My Daddy is in the military!"

When he leaves

I cry.

When I see him again

I tremble in relief.

My dad is in the military,

Yes,

I know.

Now I know.

I call out to you,

All of you,

Those are like me.

I know

That it is hard.

Now I know

I should be proud.

Now I know.

Yes,

I know.

But do you know?
