 We weep for our departed. 

Grieving, heavy hearted 
Our feelings draw our tears. 
Our sorrow now God hears.  
 
As far as eyes can see, 
So near and around me, 
The flags and notes we find 
That loved ones left behind. 
 
Dear God, please bless,
Our soldiers at rest.
Dear God, Please bless
Our Soldiers at rest.
 
2.  
 
A sea of crosses, 
Soldiers that made us free.
Watching with pounding pulse. 
I go and tend them with tears. 
 
I reach with unsure hand 
To those back from foreign lands, 
I reach to touch the Hell, 
To soothe those who fell. 
 
Dear God, please bless,
Our soldiers at rest.
Dear God, Please bless
Our Soldiers at rest.
 
3.
 
Men and women with pride, 
For you and me they died. 
They struggled soon and late 
Their suffering was great. 
 
Sing praises again 
Red, white and blue defend 
We will defeat our foes 
No matter where they go. 
 
We are the USA 
Forever we will say 
“Dear God, please bless,
Our soldiers at rest.” 
Dear God, Please bless
Our Soldiers at rest.

Memorial Day is my favorite holiday mainly because it honors those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. Powerful read.

Your poem has a wonderful lilting rhythm and deals so well with this heavy sadness of lost lives ~
Blessings,
Christine
