Memorial Day Poem

Memorial Day Poem 2016


I do not claim
To know your name,
Nor understand
What you had planned,
Before the blare
Of mad warfare,
Took you away
From this free land.

I only know
You faced a foe
And fought for me,
To keep us free.
One life to give,
That we may live
So thankfully,
For Liberty.

Now, at this time,
I keep in mind
The noble price
Of sacrifice.
I will recall
You gave your all,
And made your stand
For this Free Land.

John Stuart  2016
