On Memorial Day

One day a year we stop to think
of all the ones we've lost
We never stop to realize
just what the wars have cost

We have parades,and wave some flags
and think of wars gone by
We stand in graveyards with the rest
and we may even cry

The bugle sounds as Taps is played
then the honor guards salute
Another day has come and gone
and the bugle now is mute

The little flags will wave again
in just another year
We'll think back like we did before
and shed another tear

How many more will bleed and die
and then lie here so still
Not telling of the pain they had
upon some distant hill

We must remember all year long
not just a single day
We must remember through the year
not just Memorial day
