A Memorial Day Prayer...

Hear, O Soldier who sleeps!
O Soldier who faithfully awaits the final trumpet
of your Commander-in-Chief!
Hear O Soldier who sleeps!
We honor you for defending us and the freedoms
which we hold dear.
Remember as you dream, O Soldier,
That there are those who still honor your sacrifice...
and your Commander-in-Chief.

Frances, that was wonderful. You are so thoughtful.

Frances said...

Heather, I honestly don't know where it came from. I have frequently found that that happens on the best of God's gifts. Thanks.

Swapnil, glad that you stopped in for a visit and that you liked my poem. Come back often. Let me know a little about you and how you found my blog. Your picture is a hoot. Just out of curiosity, what reason do you have to believe that the Earth isn't flat? LOL
