Memorial Day

MemorialDay2

 

Take a moment and shed a tear

A tear of gratitude and a tear of remorse

It matters not what you think of the politician

Right or wrong, whatever they signed

 

All that matters is that for you

For the love of your country

The love of your freedom

The love you’re your liberties

Unbelievable, incredible sacrifices have been made

 

So many have said and believed with all their being that

These things are good, these things are important

That this life is worth not only defending

But if it comes to it, that it is worth dying for

 

Of the many who have my undying gratitude

Who have made the decision to sacrifice in service

To defend our freedoms

Today it is the ones that paid the ultimate price that have my thoughts

 

Such selfless sacrifice, so rare in humanity

Today I can write a poem and eat a burger

Only because of you and what you did

May God give you your deserved eternal rest

 

I thank you and I honor you, my dear departed friends

On this, YOUR Memorial Day
