Inspiration: Memorial Day - What Heroes Gave...



What Heroes Gave
by Roger Robicheau


Each donned their uniform to be
Defenders of our liberty


Their mission sure, their spirits bright
Guard freedom’s home, be brave to fight


One final day each faced their call
Each gave their best enduring all


We’ll never know what they went through
But know they loved this country true


Deep down inside we should all feel
What heroes gave, their cost so real


We must stay thankful, grateful of
The gift of freedom through their love


Their loved ones bore the gravest pain
What we can’t know, some now sustain


To God I pray their pain will cease
And each will find long-lasting peace


Remember this from year to year
What heroes gave – shan’t disappear


We’ll never let their special day
Their time for honor slip away


These brave fought for a nation free
If not for them, where would we be?
