where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
Happy Memorial Day
2) They fought for their Country
As man has through all of time
Except that these soldiers lying here
Fought for your country and mine
3) A gift for such a little while
your loss just seems so wrong
you should not have left before us
it’s with loved ones you belong.
4) Our thoughts are ever with u
Though u have passed away.
And those who loved u dearly
Are thinking of u today.
5) Our cheer goes back to them, the valiant dead!
Laurels and roses on their graves to-day,
Lilies and laurels over them we lay,
And violets o’er each unforgotten head
6) Peace to each manly soul that sleepeth,
Rest to each faithful eye that weepeth
Happy Memorial Day 2014
7) Peace will come when people live
In friendship, side by side,
And cherish understanding
More than hatred, greed and pride.
PEACE will come when people see
All people as the same,
And no one has to live in fear,
In ignorance, or shame.
8) I stand before you all today
But not one eye can see my way
My time arrived, to leave this earth
A fact so planned, to every birth
It happened where I had to go
My torch for life was so aglow
I transferred while in uniform
Protecting freedom, through a storm
9) The Comfort and Sweetness of Peace
After the clouds, the sunshine
after the winter, the spring
after the shower, the rainbow
for life is a changeable thing.
After the night, the morning
bidding all darkness cease
after life’s cares and sorrows
the comfort and sweetness of peace.
Happy Memorial day 2014
10) My days filled with gloom
as i stay locked up in my room
You die this day a long
time ago but for me
it seems like yesterday
I’ll never forget
I never forgot
Happy Memorial Day 2014
11) Four things support the world,
the learning of the wise,
the justice of the great,
the prayers of the good,
and the valor of the brave
12) Your silent tents of green,
We deck with fragrant flowers.
Yours has the suffering been,
The memory shall be ours.
13) Alas, how can we help but mourn
When hero bosoms yield their breath!!
A century itself may bear
But once the flower of such a death.
14) I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an after glow
of smiles when life is done.
15) As we stand here looking
At the flags upon these graves
Know these flags represent
A few of the true American brave
