Memorial Day 2013

 I do not know your name-
 Nor for which battle you died.
 I do not know your home,
 Nor the tears that were cried.

 I do not know where you rest-
 Nor the promises broken.
 I do not know your uniform
 And your fears unspoken.

 But, I know your spirit exists ~
 That your courage is admired,
 And your sacrifice is honored
 By each soul that inspired.

 And I offer you from my heart
 Thank You to guardians unknown
 for offering yourselves for us all
 That we may keep our freedom...
 Our home.
