"They Gave So Much" - Poem by Cecil L. Harrison

Fifty years since their lives they gave
So freedom lives the flag still waves
They wanted to live, The same as you
Be with their children, they never knew
So many things, they all did miss
Those soft sweet lips no more they'd kiss
They loved to run feel the morning sun
Loved so many things for they were young
But war forced them to leave their home
Fight in foreign lands and die alone
So don't forget, though they are gone
Though your life be sweet and full of song
They gave their all, the flag still waves
O'er the land of the free and the home fo the brave
So when you see a lonesome grave
And the stars and stripes above it waves
Just bow your head and remember yet

They gave so much; Please don't forget !
