Arlington

Walk among the gardens of stone   
evenly spaced white rows as far as the eye can see 
Watch the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown 
honoring the nameless heroes memory   

See the small flags flutter here and there 
faded by years of rain and sun 
Hear a somber gathering murmur a solemn prayer 
for a fallen hero whose journey's done 

Walk softly by an old women 
bent and scarred by the unforgiving years 
She pauses to remember what might have been 
her sad eyes filled with unrequited tears 

And when you leave these hallowed acres     
where the stone flowers grow 
Remember the fallen peace makers 
who's sacrifice bought us our tomorrow

Mike F. Gombas Sr.
