ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
They called it Decoration Day so many years ago,
We’d dress our bikes with crepe paper to let our neighbors know,
Our pride was in the best place yet for anyone to grow,
Though times have changed and so have hearts, we still can make that claim,
We can’t deny the price they paid, their lives will still remain,
In hearts and minds of those they left, their loss became our gain,
Those precious lives preserved our own, through blood and sweat and tears,
They gave the greatest sacrifice so we could spend our years, Safe from the fear of freedom lost, to follow new frontiers, We pray to you our Father, God to keep our country safe,
Protect her from all tyranny and keep her in Your way.
It’s still the best place in this world. God bless the USA.
