Memorial Day sentiments

For what celebration is it

A mother’s son lost in war

another brother, uncle, father wounded

some lost the fight and are gone

It is an honor and a shame

lives lost in vain

for what have we gained?

more have we lost

at what the cost

We should never forget

the ultimate sacrifice of lives

but this doesn’t make war right

Take a moment and say a prayer today

for your loved one’s dear

that are gone
and for the one’s still here

try not to shed a tear
Peace may come in our lifetime

if we give it a chance

like John and Yoko sang
that is all I  have to say

on this Memorial dayImage
