Love For Memorial Day

I see the eagle flying over the USA
Let us remember the Soldiers
On this Memorial Day
For the good men and woman
Who have fallen in the name of freedom
They were all "The Son's Of Liberty"
I salute your courage and your love

I look at the Lady of Liberty
She stands for all the people
Who were brought here
From across the world
Wanting freedom of speech
So we all can have the peace

Voices which never die
Like Washington, Patrick Henry
Wars by the name of 'The civil war"
1776, fighting the English
WW I AND WW 11, A war our own father's
were in. Pearl Harbor, a great loss to American's
Korean and the forgotten war of Vietnam.

Now we fight a war overseas
The golden sands of Iraq
So many young people have died with bombs
I see the planes and I pray this Memorial Day
Will bring them back and not with their names on a stone

Yes our eagle and the liberty bell stands
As does The declaration of Independence
So on this blessed day, let us give thanks
To the American Soldier and peace will one day
Come to the world once more.
