The Stone Soldier

Here’s a Memorial Day poem I wrote. May we never forget those who died for our freedom.

The Stone Soldier

He stands his watch in the wind and the rain

Watching people come to release their pain

He guards those who lie beneath the stones

All those who made that final march home

Some come as old men with memories and scars.

Some fly home in coffins covered in stars.

His silent vigil he faithfully keeps

Over those who are dead and those who do weep

He stands guard over those who answered the call

The stone soldier stands as a reminder to all

Of the high cost of freedom at dawn’s early light

Of those who stood guard in the darkest of night
