Let us not forget what Memorial Day is all about,
And remember the men and women, who without a doubt
Gave of themselves to serve, many giving up their lives
To defend our God given freedoms by their sacrifice.
Freedom is not free, it comes with a very great cost
By the many battles won and by some that have been lost.
Freedom is worth defending, something we do not want to lose.
Peace is what we long for in our present and in our future too.
So as we celebrate this day with family and friends,
Remember those who fought for our liberties to the end.
Let us give thanks for those who served and paid the price,
That we may enjoy our freedoms everyday of our lives.
Happy Reading in Poetry's Presence.
