 Reflections of My Heart

Day Is Done Memorial Day





 Day Is Done



 I display this
With great inner pride
For all who were lost
Upon land, air and the rising tide

For each and every American
Bravely took on the fight
Regardless of which flag
They believed in their plight

Both flags I display
With enormous Pride
For both I do believe
Our precious Lord did guide

I was born in Va
Of which I have great pride
In which the Civil War was fought
Where many brothers died

Yes there are some
That have severely abused
Both used as items of hate
That I cant excuse

So many just too foolish
To really understand
That you blame the force
Not the object at hand.

I honor my history
Pray for what lies ahead
My heart breaks
For all the blood thats shed

I honor all who have served
And died for our country, even now
I'll always stand tall before you
And this I do heartfully avow.

Taps

Fading light, falling night
Trumpet calls as the sun sinks in flight.
Sleep in peace, comrades dear
God is near

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
