I see your face,
I see your name,
it is the faces,
the names of
Freedom,

Because of you,
I live, I eat,
I breathe freely,

You paid the price,
with your life,
Your life was the
sacrifice,

As we celebrate
the fourth,
The fireworks will
appear,
your faces I will see,
my soul crys its tears,

For we are both free,
you paid the cost for me,
to enjoy my liberty.

Let Freedom Ring....
Celebrate the fourth,
and those who died,
continue to die for freedom.

Thank You Troops!
I will remember you,
I will honor what you did,
for me, my country, for freedom!
