We Never Forget

Brothers and Sisters at rest
we never forget
the gift you give
we still receive

how could you know
so young
that your battle
at all cost
must be won

Brothers and Sisters at rest
may we, in your eyes
pass your test
and one day, with honor
join your ranks

A Hero Cry
To be here at war is so sad. To be far from loved ones is too bad. It's like a bad dream I can't wake up from. Flares, bombs bursting in air. The voice of young men crying out in pain, enough to drive us all insane. When I wake up from this dream, I will cross lakes, bayous, rivers and streams. People should realize that we are ONE NATION UNDER GOD. Stop seeing one's color as a rod. Stand by each other's side, and you wouldn't have to hear this hero cry.

I was looking for a Memorial Day Poem to be read at our church on Sunday. The title of this poem spoke to me and not looking at the author I clicked on it. You can't imagine the pride I felt when I looked at the author and it was our son. He thinks deeply about things and never talks about it but writes poems expressing his feelings. As his mother, I was deeply touched by his words. We love you son.

I'm thinking of all of the sacrifice of our country's military heroes: those who live, those who died and those who continue to serve. I am thankful for all they do and all that they have done to give us so much that we can never repay.
