A poem of tribute to those who serve, those who served, and those who gave their lives on D-Day 1944.

D-Day, Plus Sixty-Five

Emotions trickle tears held deep and tight.
Normandy's beaches beckon once again.
He recalls the day as if his buddies wait.

France will award the Legion of Honor.
He'll visit white crosses, find peace and pain.
Emotions trickle tears held deep and tight.

Allied ships launch life boats of young GIs.
Bullets skip on water like children's stones.
He recalls the day as if his buddies wait.

Crimson surf washes lost helmets ashore.
Camouflage floats and billows like dark sails.
Emotions trickle tears held deep and tight.

On Omaha Beach they stumble through sand.
Mortar rains. German guns command the cliff.
He recalls the day as if his brothers wait.

On a brother's shoulders he climbs the hill
Until a sniper's shot sends Eddie home.
Emotion trickles tears held deep and tight.
He recalls the day as if his brother waits.

No one knows what it was really like except a few that are still around. Let us honor them now why we still can.
