I Will Always Wave!

I have been carried through many horrific battles. I have been mirrored
through many dying eyes. I have been torn, tattered and burned, And I have
kissed many far-off skies.

My colors will never be taken away For I was made – every stitch with love.
My stars and stripes will always remain An inspiration to those who see me
flying above.

No man can bar me from the minds of prisoners. No court can remove me from
the heart of freedom’s vast call. No other banner will ever replace me. No
other nation will ever possess me, no matter what befalls.

For I belong to the People of these United States of America. I have flown
over this Nation for centuries as I’ve waved free and tall. Every man, woman,
girl and boy can salute me… and be proud. For I’ve defended you one and
all.

I am the flag that will always stand for freedom. I am the cloth sewn by
blessed hands. I am the colors that other nations fear, yet depend on. I am
the American Flag, and I will protect my sovereign lands.
