Patriotic American Poems

I Love America

by Donna Wade

America, red, white, and blue
The country that I love
I'll defend this land with all I have
Until my life is done

And if I die in battle
Hang my medals high
For I want to be remembered
For my honor and my pride

Send me home to family
And tell them I was brave
I fought just like a soldier should
Until my dying day.

Mama I am sorry
I tried to make you proud
But fighting for my country
Was never something you allowed.

I fight for all our freedom
The lives of you and me
I wish it could be easier
But freedom don't come free
