Hands of a Soldier

Solid firm grip of friendship,
The same defend the free.
Silence in the gripping shake,
Acknowledge honor given.
Our hand in his hand,
Those hands defend the free.
Sacrifice of caressing hands,
back home for family, yearn.
Hands to duty honor bound,
Defends the peaceful free.
Hands wrinkled shaking,
In age still hold the pride.
Soldier's hands, veteran hands,
These hands have kept us free.
