We Honor You

by Deborah Smith Plemmons © 2017

You, our soldiers, have died on foreign sand,
Or right here in our American land.

God brings comfort to your family unit;
Who still mourn, but you are worth it.

You fought hard for what was right;
Your sacrifice made our future bright.

Because you served and did not sway,
We have freedom in our land today.

Unmarked graves, no names, headstones;
You're all remembered by your loved ones.

The Flag is raised at half-staff,
In honor of you, who have passed.

Because you died for the Red, White, and Blue,
Every Memorial Day, we honor you.
