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
