A Memorial Day Tribute


Hear the sound of soldier's boots
That marched for Freedom strong
Hearts in cadence echo true
Whether it short or long

In the wind we feel the breath
Of those that died for you
In the fields where poppies grow
We see their valor too

Soldiers fallen in the fight
With loved ones left behind
Would do it all again you see
To free all human kind

Soldiers know that freedom reigns
When peace will fill the earth
Until then they carry on
Knowing what life is worth

Stand with me and honor those
That gave their life for all
Bless all those that now do wear
Our country's flag; their pall

Place your hand over your heart
Stand quiet if you please
Close your eyes and see them there
"A-ten-hut"; now "at ease"

Place your flowers and a flag
To honor those that passed
Then turn and thank a soldier
Pray for peace that will last

written with Love, Honor and  yes, a Hope someday for peace.

To Thank and Honor  all the men, women and children
that gave their lives for the freedom of others..
