Memorial Day

English:

US military branches on parade

We pause this day to remember

Our honored, hallowed dead.

We pause today in thankfulness

For the lifeblood of theirs they shed.

From Bunker Hill to Baghdad

They came to fight and die.

And on their lips and in their hearts,

“For freedom!” was their cry.

We pause this day to remember

Their loved ones that remain.

As they went off to fight their wars

Their family’s hearts with them came.

For these brave folk we shed a tear

And bow our heads in grief,

That they might now others still care,

And in that caring find relief.

We pause this day to honor them

All those who sacrificed.

Who gave the final gift they had

As a part of freedom’s price.

We pause this day to remember

For those men and women we owe a debt,

To repay their sacrifice in honor,

And them to never, ever forget.
