Remember Me

Remember Me
A Tribute to all Veterans

The young soldier was dying in a God forsaken place
With pleading eyes he looked up into the medic’s face
As he clutched the medic’s hand in fear and agony
The last words the soldier whispered were, “remember me”

How many soldiers fought and died in a long forgotten war
How many drew their last breath on a distant shore
Young men and women served so we could now live free
I hear the echos from their graves crying please remember me

How many faces now forgotten lie beneath a stone
Etched into cold granite is the single word Unknown
Those who made it home would never be the same
With hidden scars and wounds, they are forever maimed

Young people in their prime facing fear and death
Fighting for their country with their dying breath
Memories of brave soldiers, now sadly growing dim
Each year on Veteran’s Day let us remember them
