In Memoriam

The grass grows green
The marble white
The air is still, though full of life
Eternal fires and simple stones
Patriots at home

The tap of heels in discipline
The honor guard always stays
An unknown soldier, not an unknown grave
For service given
Must be repaid

In peace or war
They gave their life
To wage the fight, with all their might
To wear the badge
To raise the flag

In Arlington
And anywhere our colors run true
The Red, White and Blue
The women and men
We remember you

    • Thanks for taking the time to stop in and comment!! I appreciate your words. I’ve been to Arlington three times now. It is an incredibly moving experience each time. I’ve tried my best to honor the women and men not only in Arlington, but wherever our soldiers are at rest.

      I’m glad you liked it! Thanks again for your comments…
