Remember Them

Loss not fathomed stirs this day
On many hearts and minds it lays
As tears are wept, red, white and blue
Taps play their part of those we knew

They were young at heart and some of age
Their sacrifice became the page
Of once upon a time, their role did play
Your peace of mind, in war engaged

They were soldiers, brothers in arms
They were sisters that kept from harm
You and I and too the world
So honor them with flags unfurled

A country boy, a man still child
A piece of them, history compiled
Their lives in battle setting the stage
Remember them as lives engaged

A neighbor's son, a friend, life lines
Paid high the cost, in service, time
Became too brief, too young not old
This write for them, their stories told

For those we lost and those still here
Give thanks and pray for peace, draw near
This very day if just in thought
Remember them, for you they fought
