celebrate Memorial day,
To honor those who fought in wars.
For those who gave their lives for us,
And went through all those horrors.
Some came home to their families,
But some never did.
Some were buried in foreign lands,
In lands they never lived.
Our sorrow will go on living,
In our minds for those still there.
Never to be forgotten,
And all those things we shared.
Love of families and festive holidays,
And birthday celebrations.
The excitement of a child being born,
Hope for long and secure relations.
A salute to those that love their homeland,
Willing to fight for all,
Surrendering their life from loved ones,
When their duty to country calls.
God Bless America,
May God permit us to stay free,
Because of brave men and women,
And our faith in God, we trust in Thee.
