To the Sacrifice

Mourning Flag

Oh the pretty flowers with patriotic ribbons entwined,

Watered with the tears of those surviving comrades and loved ones left behind,

Adorning the graves of our fallen heroes in an effort to remind,

Passers-by without cognizant respect who would otherwise be blind,

To the sacrifice.

 

Oh bright remembrance, dark mourning and brilliant reflection,

Duty, honor, respect and gratitude call us to assemble in response,

To the legacy of freedom given by those who answered the call to action,

Next generations must be taught why we decorate the graves and stand in dedication,

To the sacrifice.
