Take A Moment On Memorial Day

Take a moment today, Memorial Day
Pause for a time to reflect
On those who placed themselves in harms way
A time to honor and respect

All generations have lost their own
Fallen in places far from home
Often they died while all alone
As the fields of battle they did roam

Say a prayer for those who died
Fighting to protect our freedom
Let no one forget those fought with pride
They were not seeking fame or stardom

As they had pledged, they did their duty
Their lives cut short, horrible we agree
Thank you and God bless you for your sacrifice
Remember Freedom Is Not Free

Rest in peace, you are with Him
Know you are not forgotten
The light of liberty will not dim
Because of you who gave your all

Those you left behind
Those who follow in your footsteps
Know the truth: You Are Heroes
You are always in our heart and in our mind

We pay homage and respect
On this Memorial Day
To you our love is Heaven sent
You are remembered every day
