Memorial Day Ceremony


Tall I stood with flag in my hand
There on the green I heard the band
Playing a hymn a noble tune
To honor those who died too soon
For their homeland

The day was warm like many Mays
Placed on the graves were sweet bouquets
By relatives not to forget
Their dear loved ones the sun had set
Deserved our praise

The services were ending now
Wiping the tears from eyes and brow
To picnics soon to have some fun
Hoping more wars there would be none
Find peace somehow
