AWAITING TRANSPORT… WWII HEROES
(For Memorial Day 2006)

Awaiting Transport… WWII HeroesIn my heart
there are those heroes
that never came home
and their families that were left alone
There are also those who did
and lived with biting memories
that sometimes remained hid
of the ones they left behind
I beg of you to be kind
and make a place in your memory
where they can forever shine
These are old soldiers of yesteryear
I feel them… so protective… ever near
Their time has almost come
and they are fast fading from our sight
… never into the night but into the pure light…
and into the lights of our memories
… to stay forever bright
Heroes forever…
for they have earned that right…
