TO A FRIEND I'VE NEVER MET

I call you friend, though we may never meet,
    Because you chose a military life.
The Liberty we enjoy, the Freedom we assume,
    Is ours because you handle the strife.

Duty keeps you far from home, at Christmas this year.
    To let you know you're not alone, some gifts we send.
It's our small way of sharing and saying
    Merry Christmas, my friend.
