Poetry

Memorial Day

The meaning of Memorial Day

A day of remembrance
a moment of silence
for those who lost their lives
and made the greatest sacrifice
to protect the freedoms
we all hold dear

A day for prayer
and for remembering families
that were left behind
sons and daughters
wives and husbands
fathers, mothers,
sisters, brothers

Next time you see a soldier
thank him or her
thank their family
and pray for their safety
for they may one day
pay the ultimate price
to save our lives
