Written on a windy, rains swept day, after visiting the Wall





season after season, day after day

a scene somewhat surreal

some come this day with respects to pay

some come with wounds to heal


some travel far, some hardly at all,

but for them it's still the same

 to honor those that gave their all

and to seek out a special name


some stand in silence, thoughts all their own

 quiet reflection is their way

others speak of memories of a different time

in that land so far away


hour upon hour through out every day

 a tribute to those that fell

fathers, sons, daughters, friends

searching for a name they know so well


imprinted forever, those special names

 one and all had heard the call

 their honor and courage never questioned

 theirs the greatest sacrifice of all


placed there to honor this country's best

 from places large and small

 for an eternal debt of gratitude is owed by one and all

to those who's names forever remain

 inscribed upon The Wall

Words of reverent truth. I have been to the wall some years ago. To honor all those who fought hard and paid the ultimate price, just as we honor ALL who have fought and died in wars before. Many emotion surface through the silence. You have done justice through your words for each name etched on the wall through eternity. God bless...

Be always safe,
