A Yellow Ribbon

The loss of a loved one ever so real
The pain, the lament, tears beyond conceal
The vision of rightful freedom held within heart
From which Veterans with valor do not depart
Many a war has time come to see
Ever held be the right to live free
This day in homage to lives now in heaven’s embrace
Each life, each memory within our hearts we place
And to those who serve may the vision be ever justly clear
YOU IN HONOR, for the freedoms you defend and hold dear 
Be it of gratitude and praise, a yellow ribbon upon a tree
For all that is given by so many that we may yet live free.
