Memorial Day

I hope everybody
In this world today
Visits the soldiers
In their graves they lay

To pay our respects
Of their sacrifice, be
Who gave of their lives
For us to be free

To pray for the wounded
Who suffer this day
To stir in our soul
To help in some way

Think of their families
Of tears that won’t dry
The hole in their heart
Oh Lord, heal their “why?”

Commitment to love
All of us consort
May war small and large
Be our last resort

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

A Day To Remember

A day to remember
Those who paid the price
Protecting our freedom
With life’s’ sacrifice

Sons and our daughters
Fathers and wives
Giving it all
Including their lives

Such dedication
Let us applaud
Who unselfishly served
Our country and God

They rest is His arms
With God’s only Son
In knowledge of heart
The battle’s been won
