In Memoriam. Thank You for our Freedom.


"We look upon you,
after bittersweet exits,
for this day has come
to hear us shout,
It’s time we express,
don’t forget our merits,
lives or memoriam,
we ask, remain devout.

“Our bodies are gone,
we hope not forgotten.
We’ve left a legacy
to use for future plans.
Grief lingers, a new dawn,
read what we’ve written
value our tenacity,
and the historians.

 “War left us broken
some beyond repair,
others decay in the earth;
emotions locked away
left horrors unspoken
push farther into despair
while trying to find worth
as we struggle to stay.

“These were sacrifices,
for family and freedom
we hope you’ll remember
many years from now.
To some, too great a price,
misused humanity’s wisdom,
but we’re of high caliber,
today’s tribute, every day’s vow.”


  1. Very nice tribute to the soldiers who fought for our freedom, Bea. I love that you included those who are still here, but who suffer in a different way (emotionally).

    Have a wonderful Memorial Day. :)


  2. Thanks, Barb.

    I wish you a nice Memorial Day.
