For My Brothers
Written by Marvin V. Stenhammar - Memorial Day 2000
Tears For My Brothers...
Pause and reflect on absent those, from roll call here today,
I want to thank them all who served, a simple soldier's way.
A mournful spirit over me, today for all the years,
A sadness fills this soldier's heart, as my eyes fill with tears.
A sadness for the men who served, and those who died in war,
At Sea, in Air and on the Land, in Army and in Corps.
Bravely sure, they paid the price, so we could all be free,
Warriors each and all of them, on land in sky and sea.
They fought for freedom everywhere, fought not to settle score,
Lost more we did in Desert Storm, SOF's
Spectre rest at sea,
Marvin V. Stenhammar
|Please take time to honor the service and sacrifice of America's Veterans both today and every day. We must never forget that freedom isn't free.|
