Memorial Day, radiates memories of times past, lives lost
Thanking Veterans here now, praying for those gone
Freedom is not free, the thought radiates from everyone’s mind
Stop and thank a Vet today. Smile more, and be kind
The American Flag flies high, radiating strength
Underdogs we are not, victors we are
Not just hot dogs, parades, and flags, but people
And families, and memories, of heartbreak and sadness many years ago
Thank you to our Veterans, and their families, for all you gave up
To give us our freedom.
Let’s radiate our love, and and our thanks, to them today.
