My flag will wave until no waves are left in it.


Keep Your Flags Waving
On this Memorial Day as we reflect let your flag blow in the breeze.
So the breeze can touch our soldiers like gentle touching leaves.
They will feel our love for them by your flags flying high.
They will see our prayers floating down from the sky.
The Red, White and Blue will proudly wave until our soldiers come safely home.
As long as our flags are waving, our soldiers will never be alone.
By now my flag is badly worn and tattered as it waves.
But it will keep on waving as long as there’s one grave.
So many have lost their lives so many injured too.
But if they know we are with them, they will get through.
So keep your flags waving until the battles won.
And bring them home safely, our daughters and our sons.
Written by,
Bonnie May
