Memorial Day Weekend - Poem by Steven Taylor

this weekend marks our summer's start
cold beer and barbecue, ..
let not our revelry omit
our memories of the few

let's take a moment in between
the sun, fun, games and glee,
to bow our heads in humble thanks
for those that died to keep us free

this weekend is about much more
than that new grill we bought, ...
about more than a monday off, ....
it's about remembering those that fought

let's sacred keep the deeds of those
who've sacrificed it all
for duty, honor, justice and, ..
for those for freedom that did fall

this weekend has been set aside
for heroes and brave souls
let not our revelry omit
acknowledgement of their roles
