The Fallen Will Forever Stand

~ 10 September 2004 ~

Fallen.
In silence we ponder
Momentarily.
Years fail to wash away
Memories that stain the walls of yesterday.
What are They but those we revere?
Indelible is the pain
Yet greater is the courage
Of those who gave the incalculable bequest.
What are we but guardians of the legacy now ours?
Written in our hearts the memories
In perpetuity remain.
Forever
Will the Fallen
Stand.
