Eyes of Memorial Day

He sits in the shade
This Memorial Day
Vietnam on his hat
And mustache of gray

He stares in the distance
Somewhere else he resides
In memories stain
He’s still wounded inside

A past moments headline
Of lives that were lost
The price of our freedom
He knows the true cost

This days true meaning
In his eyes found deep
A prayer of thanks offered
Let our gratefulness seep
