The Unknown Soldier

The Unknown Soldier
by Roger J. Robicheau
The Unknown Soldier
You need not ever know my name
This unknown soldier seeks no fame
I'm here to bring out thought from you
May your heart see more than your view
America, we marched with pride
We gave our life, for you we died

How well we knew the time might come
When life could sound that final drum
Please think of us as life moves on
We tried so hard till that last dawn
Do let our spirit fill the land
Pass treasured freedom, hand to hand
God blessed this country with such love
Hold in your heart, abundance of
And when you stand before my grave
Think not of one, but each who gave

If you have not visited the tomb of the unknown soldier I hope that someday you can. It is a very emotional experience. In the meantime, here is a link to the a page dedicated to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Be safe this Memorial day.
