Memorial Day 2010

by ward on May 30, 2010



Through distant mists of memories,
I hear them call my name;
Those who served beside me,
On a battleground of pain.

Nothing left but memories,
Of those forever young;
Lives that ended suddenly,
What would they have become?

What price they paid for freedom,
The sacrifice untold;
Yet, here they are in memories,
Not one will ‘ere grow old.

For I shall keep their names alive,
Until my flame is gone;
Then pass the torch to those who will,
Remember….The Forever young.
