Some of the sky falls
in tears
as God
above remembers
those that
Man has forgotten .

He reads the tombstones ;
the names
blur as
His eyes overflow -
far too
many paid the price .

And yet ,  Man forgets
the high
cost of
freedom that allows
him to
buy another drink .

A long weekend off -
brought to
you by
the blood of soldiers
that died
for you and for me .

Go on !  Celebrate !
You have
that right -
as for me, I will
choose to
thank our veterans :

For your sacrifice ,
Thank you .
For the
freedoms I enjoy ,
and for
your service ... Thank you .

Memorial Day, I believe, as you seem to, has lost much of its meaning since my childhood days - and we need more poems like this to remind us what it truly means. Thank you, Karla.

My deepest thanks, Karla, for your beautiful and sincere reminder that we honor them! We owe the young guys who died too young to know just why. And, let's give a snappy salute to the vets in hospitals and other treatment places. If only our Government would do right by those who stil live ! ! ! An old vet - Bill
