A poem remembering heroes on Memorial Day
As we gather here this special day
We owe our freedom for those we pray.
They are our heroes forevermore
Whether in peace, or in time of war.
“All gave some, and some gave all”
Are not just words written on some wall.
But a simple fact that means so much
And goes beyond the human touch.
These men and women we honor today
Must never be allowed to fade away.
That’s why we gather along with you
To honor who served; the Red, White, and Blue.
We must also remember the many more
Who did not return from some faraway shore.
They gave their all for the U.S. of A...
And remain in our hearts and in the prayers that we say.
So for all who are here; in the sun, clouds, or rain
We’re sharing together our loss and our pain.
For without these great heroes, we might not be here
But living a nightmare surrounded in fear.
We thank you for joining our ranks on this day
And sharing with us, these words that we say.
For all those we honor helped us stay free
And that’s why this day... is so important you see.
