Memorial Day

As the sun rises orange
Casting purple 'pon the clouds.
This is a day to remember
Our soldiers and be proud.

Many have gone before.
So that we can have life.
Look at their graves, too young
To even have a wife.

As the Dove coos, "Mournful."
The cock crows, "Wake up, day!"
Take just a few minutes 
And be thankful before play.

Memorial Day May 27, 2013

    Your best line for me is," Many have gone before, So that we can have our life." Yes for us to have a better tomorrow they sacrifice their lives. I always question myself, Why it happen. For someone's greed for power. Young lives pay for it. You have reminded all of us, the young and old, "Be thankful before play". very emotional

    You have inspired me to think more of our troops today, what they go through each and every day, both those in the field and those that have returned back home to face another hardship!
