Heroes


In fields of white crosses our heroes lay
In tombs marked with boldness
The courage they displayed
So let's remember in every way
Our country honors our heroes today.
In fields of flowers ours heroes lay
Knowing what they gave can't be repaid
Their lives cut short and taken away
Let's not forget the price they've paid
So let's honor these heroes everyday
In fields of green grasses our heroes lay
Believing the struggles will continue today
Not only at home I am sorry to say
But across the globe together each day
Our veterans and heroes be respected each day.
In fields of great losses our heroes lay
Though quietly sleeping, their voices still say:
'We will not regret the parts we have played
It must be remembered in every way'
These heroes deserved our thanks today.

    Remembering the heroes that deserve our thanks is very honorable. Well stated poem.
    Our son was in the marines, was killed here in the states, by a semi driver who fell
    asleep at the wheel. He's our hero in every respect, he had volunteered to serve,
    wanting to protect us here in the U.S.A. Love this poem, great tribute! Thank you
    very much for sharing. (Report) Reply

    i disagree with you using heroes to describe those who are buried.. SOME of them probably DID die from performing what i would consider heroic acts, but i bet many if not most did not. i'll try a more complete answer tomorrow perhaps. (Report) Reply

    They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old;
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
    We will remember them. (Report) Reply
