Because of You, Unknown Soldier

Because of You, Unknown Soldier
By Courtney Tanabe

Because of you, I am here
Because of you, I am able to live freely

Yet I do not know you
And I have not done anything for you

But there you stand, ready to fight
And there you are prepared to die
For me

You’ve fought before
And you’ll fight again
For someone you don’t know

So thank you Unknown Soldier
Fighting for me

I’m here because of you
And I owe my future to you
