Remembering Our Heroes

by Margaret Cagle

We remember our fallen heroes
On Memorial Day every year.
They died while serving our nation
And preserving freedom so dear.

Many lie in national cemeteries
Where a cross marks each grave.
We honor each one of these heroes.
For America, their lives they gave.

Sometimes I visit an old grave
Of a hero, my dear Uncle Dan.
He died fighting in World War Two.
He was a very courageous man.

I visit the graves of friends
Who made the ultimate sacrifice.
They gave their lives for America.
For freedom, they paid the price.

I thank God for all the heroes
Who died in such a brave way,
Whose blood was shed for America.
We will honor them on this day.
