The NOW of Yesterday

The pulsing, sounding, recording within our heart
From which memory and sentiment have their start
Of dear loved ones who once filled our day
Their souls taken to another path, to the eternal way
We share gestures kind and hold to grace
And within our BEING love we place
Memorial Day in reflection of sacrifice and noble deed
Freedom's cry, ever a a touching living creed
This day, the NOW of Yesterday we yet share
For timeless be each heart's loving care
Life with God's blessings shall ever prevail
'Tis the vision of freedom and valor within souls we hail.
