May Lament

Memorial Day just weeks away

The start of Summer's festive season

A time to remember those who've passed

From any accident, ails, or war

Remembering our favorite sons

Often who remember moms and pops

Lost brothers, sisters, cousins, kin

That they pray are with the Lord above

Hope the weather holds till then

And have a pleasant day, parade

To remember those who've gone before

Their faces not seen here no more

Maybe take my daughter that day

To visit the cemeteries and pray

At the stones of relatives interred

Remembering past better times

And to all those we've lost to war

Will be saluted like years before

Gun salutes at the memorials

For all those lost to wars before

I pray the National Day of Prayer

Will help to ease the tensions abroad

And finally bring some peace on earth

To bring a final end to war
