For Memorial Day

You returned from battles to family and friends
Often bewildered by changing winds
While you were at war, we spoke of peace
Yet our love for you will never cease

Our words seem too little, barely a start
To show our thanks for fulfilling your part
You protected our freedom on land, air, and sea
When our country was threatened, you served willingly

We remember the sacrifice that you gave
By placing flowers upon your grave
You are our heroes, inspiring our souls
To honor,  to duty, and  loftier goals

As we call to the masses “Let freedom reign”
We remember our flag contains a red stain
Into our vision,  tears bitterly flood
For our freedom was won by patriot’s blood–  P J Casselman
