 Poems by The Old Cowboy

With Honor

Red White and Blue fluttering in the wind
Placed upon the resting places of military men
Flags gently erected by caring hands
Of ones lost in wars in far away lands

From our largest cites to the smallest towns
Proud but humble veteran's gather around
Never asking for anything in return
Just praying the young watch and learn

Some buried in foreign lands never to come home
Tended through the years so none are alone
There on bright and sunlit days or mornings of frost
Veterans taking care of our brave lost

So when we are laid to the final rest
New veterans will step up and do their best
Showing to us the honor deserved
For this lands freedom that we preserved

Red White and Blue fluttering in the wind
Knowing we will have no cause to feel chagrin
Always proud of our military future and past
True to America our home till the last
