They bore the burden
Walked with a limp
Took the bullet
They saw things that no one should
And heard things that no one should
They suffered in silence
For they didn’t want to burden others
But we know, we see, we care
We will never forget their sacrifice
So on this Memorial Day, we pause
Breathe in their being
Stand shoulder to shoulder with one another
Let their existence be within us
We recognize the interrupted life
We promise to never take our freedom for granted.
