Happy Memorial Day!!!

Memorial Day

We walked among the crosses
Where our fallen soldiers lay.
And listened to the bugle
As taps began to play.


The Chaplain led a prayer
We stood with heads bowed low.
And I thought of fallen comrades
I had known so long ago.

They came from every city
Across this fertile land.
That we might live in freedom.
They lie here 'neath the sand.


I felt a little guilty
My sacrifice was small.
I only lost a little time
But these men lost their all.

Now the services are over
For this Memorial Day.
To the names upon these crosses
I just want to say,


Thanks for what you've given
No one could ask for more.
May you rest with God in heaven
From now through evermore.
