Memorial Day

They went to fight
Shoulder to shoulder
Sons, husbands, and brothers,
Somebodies loved once,
For all the best time to come,
For other people, and for us.
Some would come home with honors,
Others with purple hearts.
Unluckiest would give away their hearts
In fights.

Today, the silent flame of fire
On the memorials remind us
Of the good and bad times.
There are two words
Bigger then life,
"Freedom" and "Life" itself.
Freedom and good life -
For them, for us, and for future lives!

Ida Tomshinsky, 2006-2011
