 Poems by The Old Cowboy

Far Away Shores

In many distance lands a lonely bugle echoes
For those soldiers left behind so long ago

With  many fields of fading white crosses
The only memorial for all of our loses

Time wears away everything with its wrath
Leaving nothing to show of what has passed

The  brave American troops who so many times
Went off to fight against the worlds evil crimes

Now lay beneath foreign soil soon to be forgot
Should their lives and duty be all for naught

Let the torch of memories be passed along  
Never let the generations forget they are gone

Honor our fallen from all the long wars
Those many still resting on far away shores
