Remembered

I am a man with a name I fought in a war without shame.

For if I die today alot of people will cry at my grave.

What if you died today, would you be remembered for what you gave.

Would you be remembered for standing toe to toe with the brave.

What will it say on your grave.

Will it say he stood strong and brave.

Or will it say a life wasted what a shame.

Never to old to make a difference, change one persons plight, you will always be held in 
heart when you are out of sight.

Never keep hidden away, there is always someone to help at the end of the day.
