Protecting freedom, through a storm

memorial day poem

1) Christian Memorial Day Poem

Today we honor all of you,
Who served your country with pride,
You risked your life for all of us,
As you fought side by side.

Your strength and courage always showed,
No matter what the danger might be,
And you did all of this,
So that we could all be free.

Thank you all for what you've done,
And now we will all pray,
For each and everyone of you,
On this Memorial Day.

- by Debbie Bongiovanni (California)

2) Christian Memorial Day Poem 2014 

The flag of our nation, a flag under God.
To our flag we will always be true.
Stand proud, stand tall with hand over heart,
as we honor the red, white, and blue.

A symbol of freedom. A banner for all
who reside underneath it's proud wave.
Though battered and torn, shattered and worn,
It flies, o'er the home of the brave.

Stand proud, stand tall, with hand over heart,
with respect for this flag we so love.
May this land always be, strong and free,
and protected by God from above.

We are a proud nation. One under God.
It was He who gave us this land.
Free we remain, to praise His great name.
Rise up, and for God make a stand.

Our flag has flown high over battlefields.
Covered caskets of daughters and sons.
Great is the cost, through lives that are lost.
We'll gratefully remember each one.

Stand proud, stand tall, with hand over heart,
with respect for this flag that we love.
May this land always be, strong and free,
and protected by God from above.

- by Ron Tranmer (U.S.A.)

3) Christian Memorial Day Prayers 

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy every day, we think of how they have followed in the footsteps of your son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Please hold our servicemen and women in your strong arms. Cover them with your sheltering grace and your presence as they stand in the gap for our protection.

We also remember the families of our troops. We ask for your unique blessings to fill their homes, and we pray your peace, provision, and strength will fill their lives.

May the members of our armed forces be supplied with courage to face each day and may they trust in the Lord's mighty power to accomplish each task. Let our military brothers and sisters feel our love and support.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.

Look up, there's our flag!
We can count every star,--
And the red, blue, and white,
How lovely they are!

Floating high, floating wide,--
We can see it from far,

In the sun, in the wind,
Do its bright colors shine.
O look at the flag,
It is yours, it is mine!

Short Poems About Memorial Day 2014 | Sad Touching Poems And Prayers

short memorial day poems

1) Golden Memories - Poem

They say memories are golden, well, maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.
A million times I cried. If love alone could have saved you,
you never would have died. In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place no one else could fill.
If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane.
I’d walk the path to Heaven and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same. But as God
calls us back one by one, the chain will link again.

2) So Very Special - Poem

She was so very, very special
And was so from the start
You held her in your arms
But mainly in your heart
And like a single drop of rain
That on still waters fall,
Her life did ripples make
And touched the lives of all.
She’s gone to play with angels
In heaven up above
So keep your special memories
And treasure. them with love
Although your darling daughter
Was with you just a while
She’ll live on in your heart
With a sweet remembered smile

3) Short Memorial Day Poems 

As the sun rises orange
Casting purple 'pon the clouds.
This is a day to remember
Our soldiers and be proud.

Many have gone before.
So that we can have life.
Look at their graves, too young
To even have a wife.

As the Dove coos, "Mournful."
The cock crows, "Wake up, day!"
Take just a few minutes 
And be thankful before play.

Memorial Day Poems For Childrens 2014 | Peace Prayers For Kids

memorial day poem for kids

1) This Land We Love

How beautiful this land we love
We cherish all good people of
With pride we call this home our own
Oh how our seed of freedoms grown
American is what we are
Our time has nurtured us so far
For truth and justice we do strive
Our laws are meant to not deprive
We know we’re not the perfect place
As we are of the human race
In God we trust along our way
His goodness near, both night and day
So please do stop and pray awhile
Ask help in facing each new mile
And now I’ll end with words so clear
Concerning freedom we hold dear
Let Grateful Thought – Well Deep Inside
For Soldiers Brave – Our Country’s Pride

- by Roger Robicheau

2) The Day God Took You Home

The Day God Took You Home
In tears we saw you sinking,
And watched you pass away.
Our hearts were almost broken,
We wanted you to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping,
So peaceful, free from pain,
How could we wish you back with us,
To suffer that again. It broke our hearts to
lose you, But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.

3) God Took Him To His Loving Home

God saw him getting tired, a cure was not to be.
He wrapped him in His loving arms and whispered ‘Come to Me.’
He suffered much in silence, his spirit did not bend,
He faced his pain with courage, until the very end.
He tried so hard to stay with us but his fight was not in vain
God took him to His loving home and freed him of his pain

4) Memorial Day Poems 2014

A time for picnics, time off work -
Vacations and the “Indy” -
A holiday, too often times
We forget what, it should be.
A time to pay respect to those
Who rallied to the battle cry -
Who gave their lives for liberty -
Those freedoms for you and I.
Such a waste of brave young souls -
Some still struggling through their youth
Who faced and fell willingly
Before wartimes’ awful truth.
So as we share this holiday
With our friends or family -
Take a moment to give thanks to
Those who died so we’d stay free.
Let us strive for world peace -
For the end of greed and hate -
For next time, after “the war”
It just may be too damned late

Memorial Day Poem About Soldier

Posted by Raj Saini
A Soldier - Memorial Day Poem

"A soldier is a nobody, we hear lots of people say.
He is the outcast of the world and always in the way.
We admit there are bad ones from the Army to the Marines,
but the majority you will find, the most worthy ever seen.
Most people condemn the soldier when he stops to take a drink or two,
but does a soldier condemn you, when you stop to take a few.
Now don't scorn the soldier but clasp him by the hand,
for the uniform he wears means protection to our land.
The goverment picks its soldier from the million far and wide,
so please place him as your equal good buddies side by side.
When a soldier goes to battle you cheer him on the way,
you say he is a hero when in the ground he lay.
But the hardest battle of the soldier is in the time of peace,
when all mock and scorn him and treat him like a beast.
With these few lines we close sir, we hope we don't offend
but when you meet a soldier just treat him like a friend."

The Unknown Soldier
by Roger J. Robicheau
