Remembering the Fallen
Their sacrifice complete.
They gave their all that we may live
in Freedom ever sweet.
To know their loved ones pine for them;
Sorrow dark beyond belief,
May memories and God’s own hand
Bring gentle hope and peace
We shake our heads and marvel,
Why they gave with all their might;
Marched into a battlefield,
For their country fought the fight.
Just knowing that they gave their lives
For fellow countrymen
And that, if they could, they’d tell us now
“I’d do it all again.”
It humbles to my very core
To think upon such things;
The pride and heartfelt gratitude
Each memory still brings.
Tears fall with patriotic songs;
Flag waving stirs our heart
Remember, cherish, honor, pray –
Each one can do our part.
