|Memorial Day 2011|
We need him to be there right now,
We know this in our hearts.
But watching him go fight for us,
It's bitter from the start.
Our minds can grip the case for peace,
the importance of the cause.
But the mind cannot convince the heart
when all we wish for is what was.
We honor and remember those
who have fought this fight before us,
And mourn for every last lost child,
Sons and daughters who implore us ...
Never forget the sacrifice
Of your Nation's daughters and sons.
Honor those who fought for you,
And remember them, one by one.
So while we wait for our Soldier's return,
We wait with love and expectation,
That all he does will be for good
And be honored by our great Nation.
Happy Memorial Day 2011
