Memorial Day 2016

While most of us here in the U.S. enjoy an extended weekend full of barbecues, friends, fun, and family time, let us reflect on those who have sacrificed their lives serving and protecting. Thank you.

TAPS

written by Major General Daniel Butterfield

Day is done…
Gone the sun
From the lake…
From the hills…
From the sky.
All is well…
Safely rest
God is nigh.

Fading light….
Dims the sight
And a star….
Gems the sky….
Gleaming bright
From afar….
Drawing nigh
Falls the night.

  • Taps is a song I recognize instantly, but it has been a long time since I read/heard the words. Thanks for reminding me. 🙂

    • It’s a powerful song. Happy Memorial Day!
