A TIME TO REMEMBER


Author: Boyce Clark, USMC E/2/7



I stood alone and looked around,
At this windy, cold and hallowed ground.
The countless markers, row upon row,
A reminder of wars fought long ago.
This common ground they all now share,
Why are so few here to care?
Complacent? Forgetful? Who's to say?
A time to remember, a time to pray.
Some fought "the war to end all wars,"
A better life for all:

Still World War 11, Korea,'Nam,
Where's the answer to it all?
Peace is hard to come by,
If these men could only speak,
I'm sure their answer would be as one,
"Treasure liberty! Don't be weak!
Just don't forget, we did our share,
For country, freedom and you.
Is it too much then to ask,
To remember ... give us our due!"


Sempers,
