A tribute to the heroes fallen, but far from forgotten, this Memorial Day.


 

 
Heroes gone but not forgotten
Each one resting in a field
Where the daffodils of summer
Bow their heads, sadness to yield
Soldiers gone, but not our freedom
Sacrifices dually made
In the name of peace and progress
Bravery rests beneath the shade.
 
On this day, we must remember
All the troops from all the wars
With thanks for their selfless service
Miles away on barren shores
Each battled boldly for the cause
Calm and harmony their goals
Therefore with Taps in mind, we pause
Honoring these valiant souls.
 
Heroes gone, but kept in memories
Every time Old Glory waves
Patriots for independence
Resting in eternal graves
‘neath the vast and sprawling wonder
Of the brilliant skies in May
We’ll pay everlasting homage
To them, on Memorial Day.

Yes we will Jill. My thanks, my respect and my honoring them, are not just things I do on Memorial Day, but the whole year 'round. Our fighting forces are trying to bring democracy to a people that has had nothing but turmoil for centuries.

Our fighting men and women deserve our undying respect for their bravery, courage, and resolve to to do their best so we can continue to be free. No veterans, no freedom. Thank you for sharing this wonderful tribute to our fighting men and women, whereever they may be.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

Like the fact that you wrote they must be remembered from all the wars. I said the same thing in one of my reviews to an author. We must remember them all, living or dead. And this tribute does that.
