The Forgotten Unknown Soldier

Memorial Day flags at the cemetery where my dad is buried

Memorial Day flags ~ I am in a patriotic mood!

No one was there
To watch where he lay.
No comrade in arms
His death could abate.

His struggle unspoken
To others nearby.
His battle had ended
Without a reply.

No name on his tomb
On some lonely hillside.
No mention of bravery
Across the worldwide.

Deserving of highest honor
In the annals of time.
Yet heroes forgotten
Rest unnoticed to those passing by.

Let us never forget the price paid for our freedom.
