Poem 1 by C W Johnson

We walked among the crosses
Where our fallen soldiers lay.
And listened to the bugle
As TAPS began to play.
The Chaplin led a prayer
We stood with heads bowed low.
And I thought of fallen comrades
I had known so long ago.
They came from every city
Across this fertile land.
That we might live in freedom.
They lie here 'neath the sand.
I felt a little guilty
My sacrifice was small.
I only lost a little time
But these men lost their all.
Now the services are over
For this Memorial Day.
To the names upon these crosses
I just want to say,
Thanks for what you've given
No one could ask for more.
May you rest with God in heaven
From now through evermore.
This Poem was composed by C W Johnson

This poem is composed by C W Johnson for Memorial Day and to remind soldiers, Oh, I really like it Happy Memorial Day 2017

Poem 2 by Composed Steve Carlsen

 A death of a Hero: 
Clothes soaked with blood, and blood on his boots
As he breaths, he gurgles blood
He lays in the shadow cast by a wall of stone
A million miles from home
Eyes wide with fright. His brothers by his side.
He quietly prays as he slowly dies
As blood drains from his body, color leaves his face
His blood waters the flowers in this God forsaken place
They hold him so he doesn’t die alone.
They hold him until they have to bag him and send him home.
Tears leave streaks down a dirty face
Sorrow and emptiness now takes his place
With the utmost care, they zip up the big black bag
and wrap his body in an American flag.
A hero is going home.
This Poem was composed by Steve Carlsen

This poem is made up of Steve Carlsen, but it's not Memorial Day, but it really touches his heart and made love to the heroes of the United States of America (U.S.A) because of what we actually celebrated Memorial Day with 2017 Memorial Day Poems.

Poem 3 composed by Amy Peterson 

A Mother's Tear: There's more to the story,
then what just appears.
A war written story,
from blood and from tears.
My son went to war,
a very proud man.
He fought in Iraq,
on the hot desert sands.
He witnessed his buddies,
his comrades, his men,
bleeding and dying,
he witnessed their end.
Where is Pvt. Tommy?
He's blown up all around,
his comrades spent hours,
picking him from the ground.
Sleeping in holes,
dug in the sand,
dreaming of home,
but it's become a foreign land.
He can't tell his enemy,
from family or foe,
as he watches his friends sent out,
with tags on their toe.
He knows his Mama,
is sleepless like him,
and he tries to send word,
whenever he can.
He tries not to worry,
his family at home,
the horror that he faces,
he faces alone.
His mission is over,
he's sent back to me,
he fought for our freedom,
but he'll never be free.
He yearns for his buddies,
that died over there.
He's caught with the living,
in a doubled looped snare.
He screams in the night,
for the battle still, roars,
as he lays in his bed,
he re-lives all the horror.
Nobody heard the fight,
he still fights,
except for his Mama,
who comforts him every night.
He never will be,
the son I once knew,
the war killed that part,
for freedom, for you.
Great Nation, Great Leaders,
and all those who will hear,
Freedom began
on a mother's first tear.
Poem composed by Amy Peterson 

It is the favorite of the crowd and everyone comes to tears at the end of this Memorial Day poem. It is truly a masterpiece to tell the feelings of a mother when this kind of hero gives his life.

Poem 4 composed by Mitchell Browder

We Never Forget:  Brothers and Sisters at rest
we never forget
the gift you give
we still receive
how could you know
so young
that your battle
at all cost
must be won
Brothers and Sisters at rest
may we, in your eyes
pass your test
and one day, with honor
join your ranks
Poem composed by Mitchell Browder 

A short and sweet poem Mitchell Browder on how we can never forget the gift that the veterans have blessed us.

Poem 5 composed by Charles Sorley

When you see millions of the mouthless dead:When you see millions of the mouthless dead
Across your dreams in pale battalions go,
Say not soft things as other men have said,
That you'll remember. For you need not so.
Give them not praise. For, deaf, how should they know
It is not curses heaped on each gashed head?
Nor tears. Their blind eyes see not your tears flow.
Nor honour. It is easy to be dead.
Say only this, “They are dead.” Then add thereto,
“Yet many a better one has died before.”
Then, scanning all the o'ercrowded mass, should you
Perceive one face that you loved heretofore,
It is a spook. None wears the face you knew.
Great death has made all his for evermore.
Poem composed by Charles Sorley

Charles Sorley died at the age of twenty October 13, 1915, at the Battle of Loos. He himself writes "When you see millions without poetry mouth poets and it is really amazing

Poem 6 composed by Clare Stewart

 Remembrance Day: She stands in the cold
Her black cloth coat
Suits the occasion
But fails to keep her warm
Despite the gleam of silver
At her breast.*

Her thoughts circle round:

“Why did we have another war?
Didn’t we lose enough men already?
Why did my sons have to die?
O God, keep me upright.
Help me not to scream
Out their names.

“What will we have for dinner tonight?
What would Joey and Bill have wanted?
It’s so hard to have faith…
It’s so hard to have hope…
Why did my sons have to die?
Jesus, you comforted your mother
As she stood and watched you die.
If I pray hard enough
Will you bring comfort to me?

“If that preacher says ‘Noble Sacrifice’
One more time I’ll scream…
I’ll scream out their names
So hard the dead will hear me.
Only this time, I’ll scream out loud
Instead of in my heart.”

But she doesn’t scream…
She stands beside the Honour Guard
Who are older than her sons
Were when they died.

The people nearby watch her,
Wondering how she can stand
So still, so calm,
Knowing she lost two boys,
Thinking she has lost her grief
After all these years
When to her it might
Have been today.
Poem composed by Clare Stewart

This poem Clare Stewart, a Canadian, is too perfect for Memorial Day, although his name will be a Remembrance day, which is a totally different holiday day. Despite this, when we read this poem, which seems to be written by Clare Stewart specifically for Memorial Day.

“On thy grave the rain shall fall from the eyes of a mighty nation!”  Thomas William Parsons

Victory, you trumpets, over the rich Dead!
There’s none of these so forlorn and poor of old,
Be that as it may, kicking the bucket, has made us rarer endowments than gold.

There is nothing amiss with America that can’t be cured with what is right in America.

Patriotism is supporting your nation constantly, and your legislature when it merits it.

“Heroism is not only in the man but in the occasion.” — Calvin Coolidge

Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.

There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America. – BILL CLINTON

 Poem 7 composed by Curtis D Bennett

 Remember Me: I was once the pride of this country,
The healthy, the young, the strong and brave,
Then I quickly became the acceptable casualty
In my country’s undeclared war
In the name of national interest,
A country where I was too young to vote!
I went because I was still too young
To know any better, though others
Cleverly refused or ran away to hide.
I never once dreamed my own government
Would ever lie to its own people,
But I was mistaken and they did for years.
I fought their war in a hell for one year,
Then came home and found another hell,
Awaiting from the very people and country
Who determined I go in the first place
Then their war, suddenly became mine,
And I was the convenient scapegoat!
Today, I am the broken bodies and minds
Shunted off, out of sight, behind heavy doors
Of VA hospitals and mental wards to die.
I am in wheel chairs and braces, in hospital beds;
I walk the streets; I wander the railroad tracks,
I sleep beneath the stars.
Poem composed by Curtis D Bennett

This poem is Curtis D Bennett explains how it feels when someone forgets when he was willing to give everything for them. So this poem of him, that is to say, people to remember those who fought for their safety and their freedom.

Poem 8 composed by Kelly Strong

Freedom Isn't Free: I watched the flag pass by one day.
It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine saluted it,
and then he stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud,
He'd stand out in any crowd.
I thought how many men like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil?
How many mothers' tears?
How many pilots' planes shot down?
How many died at sea?
How many foxholes were soldiers' graves?
No, freedom isn't free.
I heard the sound of TAPS one night,
When everything was still
I listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times
That TAPS had meant "Amen,"
When a flag had draped a coffin
Of a brother or a friend.
I thought of all the children,
Of the mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives.
I thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea
Of unmarked graves in Arlington.
No, freedom isn't free.
Poem composed by Kelly Strong

Poem 9 composed by Theodosia Pickering Garrison

 A handful of old men walking down the village street
In worn, brushed uniforms, their gray heads high;
A faded flag above them, one drum to lift their feet-
Look again, O heart of mine, and see what passes by!
There's a vast crowd swaying, there's a wild band playing,
The streets are full of marching men, or tramping cavalry.
Alive and young and straight again, they ride to greet a mate again-
The gallant souls, the great souls that live eternally!
A handful of old men walking down the highways?
Nay, we look on heroes that march among their peers,
The great, glad Companions have swung from heaven's byways
And come to join their own again across the dusty years.
There are strong hands meeting, there are staunch hearts greeting-
A crying of remembered names, of deeds that shall not die.
A handful of old men?-Nay, my heart, look well again;
The spirit of America today is marching by!
Poem composed by Theodosia Pickering Garrison
These two poems are true masterpieces and incredible work in the poem industries. I thought to add more poems, but after reading these words, I do not think we'd like more.

Happy Memorial Day 2017 Thank You Messages 

The only war is the war you fought in. Every veteran knows that. Happy Memorial Day 2017.

The more we sweat in peace the less we bleed in war.

But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for, Is their monument to-day, and for aye.

How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!

The hero is the man dedicated to the creation and / or defense of reality conforming, life-promoting values.
Patriotism is supporting your nation constantly, and your legislature when it merits it.

“In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.” — Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Each of the patriots whom we remember on this day was first a beloved son or daughter, a brother or sister, or a spouse, friend, and neighbor.” — George H. W. Bush

Happy Memorial Day 2017 poems

Lights Out
One hundred years on and still the shout

“Everyone put your lights out”

Just for an hour from 10 to 11

And remember all those souls in heaven

One hundred years and still the cry

The perennial unanswered question “why?”

Is there a need in this hour of deed

For any to ignore or not to heed?

One hundred years, millions dead

In battles, wars and streets of dread

Trenches then, now car bombs blast

Tearing at families left aghast

One hundred years – again LIGHTS OUT

Not one city but the country throughout

Is this too much to ask ourselves

For those who died through bayonet and shells?

Lights out and let us honour our dead

Light a single candle in room or shed

Remember those terse words upon us yet

“Lest we Forget – lest we forget!”

#11 Happy Memorial day 2017 Poems

The flag of our nation, a flag under God.
To our flag we will always be true.
Stand proud, stand tall with hand over heart,
as we honor the red, white, and blue.
A symbol of freedom. A banner for all
who reside underneath it’s proud wave.
Though battered and torn, shattered and worn,
It flies, o’er the home of the brave.
Stand proud, stand tall, with hand over heart,
with respect for this flag we so love.
May this land always be, strong and free,
and protected by God from above.
We are a proud nation. One under God.
It was He who gave us this land.
Free we remain, to praise His great name.
Rise up, and for God make a stand.
Our flag has flown high over battlefields.
Covered caskets of daughters and sons.
Great is the cost, through lives that are lost.
We’ll gratefully remember each one.
Stand proud, stand tall, with hand over heart,
with respect for this flag that we love.
May this land always be, strong and free,
and protected by God from above.
