Memorial Day Poem

Memorial Day

Throughout our country
People sing in memory -
MY COUNTRY TIS OF THEE

For those brave soldiers
Who fought for our -
SWEET LAND OF LIBERTY

People take time off
From work to pray and to remember -
OF THEE I SING

To commemorate those soldiers
Who fought in battles long ago for the -
LAND WHERE MY FATHERS DIED

Each fallen soldier
Is one less person to live in this -
LAND OF THE PILGRIMS' PRIDE

And wherever our soldiers are
Their families will be waiting for them -
FROM EVERY MOUNTAINSIDE

To lay down their life so that we
May live free to sing -
LET FREEDOM RING!

We are truly indebted to those fallen soldiers
And to their families.
May their memories be eternal.
