Memorial Day 2019 Heart- touching Poems
Like Father Like Son
Tyler James was just a baby when his daddy died in Nam.
He was raised by a sister and a hard working mom.
He was raised to love his country, and every time he saw the flag.
He thought of his father, and how he gave all that he had.
When Tyler finished high school he found a good job.
He helped his mom and sister, because he knew that times were hard.
Little did they know the world was to change,
Yeah, buildings came down by men in hijacked planes.
Tyler hugged his mom and sister and headed out the door.
His country would respond, he knew there would be war.
He enlisted in the service, they made him a strong man,
after basic training, he was sent to a foreign land.
Oh, he served with the bravest.
They were proud and they stood tall.
Some of them had fathers whose names are on the wall.
After many months of battle Tyler’s mother got the call,
Tyler James, her only son, took his final fall.
On a hillside in the country, now lies Tyler James.
And his mother spoke the words, engraved beneath his name.
HE WAS PROUD OF HIS COUNTRY HE WOULD FIGHT UNTIL WE WON.
HE WAS KILLED IN BATTLE, LIKE FATHER LIKE SON.
Tyler James was just a baby, when his daddy died in Nam.
On This Memorial Day
Remember those who served before.
Remember those who are no more.
Remember those who serve today.
Remember them as we eat and play.
Remember our protectors-
who are not home today.
Remember them all on Memorial Day.
We Never Forget
Brothers and Sisters at rest
we never forget
the gift you give
we still receive
how could you know
that your battle
at all cost
must be won
Brothers and Sisters at rest
may we, in your eyes
pass your test
and one day, with honor
join your ranks
To Them We Owe
Happened today, and in the past;
Sacrifice made, for ours to last.
Wives to widows, families torn;
Gave their lives, for them we mourn.
Gone forever, souls are lost;
Freedom comes, with this cost.
Enjoy the life, they did preserve;
Fate they suffered, did not deserve.
On this day, lest we forget;
To them we owe, our life in debt.
Somewhere Out There
Somewhere out there today,
In a land far, far away.
A soldier rides patrol,
Knowing not what may unfold.
He keeps watch, as he rides,
Over dangerous countryside.
Roadside bomb, could be hit.
Scary, by this soldier doesn’t quit.
Think about Mom and Dad,
About the good times had,
State-side, how long here?
Back to watching, a little fear.
This was a good day,
To think and to pray.
Strange, that prayer is so right,
When there could be a fire fight.
Wheel back into base,
Tomorrow, another ride to face.
Convoys done for the day,
Looks like rain’s on its way.
Nerve racking job but boring too,
But that’s what soldier’s do.
So many over here, none alike,
Who have gladly joined this fight.
Freedom has a high cost,
Lives given, the ultimate loss.
That cost they willingly give,
So freedom can continue to live.
So, we remember today,
All those who went away-
And gave their lives, that we,
Might live here and stay free.
God Bless America!
