Post A Poem For Memorial Day

BORN TO PROMISE - A SPARK OF LIGHT,
IN OUR NATION'S DEFENSE THEY FOUGHT THE FIGHT,
WITH HONOR AND COURAGE, THEY SERVED WITH PRIDE,
AND FOR GOD AND COUNTRY, THERE THEY DIED.

THEY ASKED NOT FOR CREDIT, BUT SERVED BESIDE,
MED OF COURAGE WHO ALSO DIED,
FOR THIS THEIR NATION, THEY LAY AND BLED,
WHERE MANY A TEAR WAS ALSO SHED.

NOW THEY LIE DOWN IN FIELDS OF RED,
WHERE MANY A BOOT HAS ALSO TRED,
FOR THEY WERE SOLDIERS, TRIED AND TRUE,
AND THEY FOUGHT THE FIGHT LIKE MANY OF YOU.

THEY ASK NOT FOR CREDIT, BUT ONLY A THOUGHT,
IT WAS NOT A MEDAL THAT THEY SOUGHT,
AND NOW AS THEY LIE BENEATH THE BLUE,
I PRAY THAT YOU YET LOVE THEM, AS MUCH AS THEY LOVED YOU!

VERITAS INFINITUM [TRUTH FOREVER]

Real Patriots

Are all real patriots
Fated to die in wars
Or are some destined to
Remain behind to honor
The memory of their fallen comrades?
