Flowers of Freedom

Post by Travis » Thu Jul 26, 2012 8:10 pm

Pause and remember
Reflect and not forget
The men and women
Who gave their all
Fighting
Lighting Freedom's Flame
Preciously preserving Freedom's Fortunes
With their bravery and blood
And as the flood of tears
Roll down the faces of the grieving
We must pray
Never stop believing
In our country
In our liberty
For as they lay
Planted in gardens of stone
Row upon rows
They, our fallen heroes
Have flowers of freedom
Meticulously marking every grave
Freedom's price-
A sacrifice
They so gallantly gave...
