Respect

Writing Type: Poem

By Lawrence W. Langman
--Portage, IN

Now we lay you down to rest,
medals pinned upon your chest.
Head held high, you've walked this earth,
honor and dignity held since birth.
You gave your all for country pride,
yet always able to keep astride.
Your strong belief in the American dream
kept in high regard, held in such esteem.
Nary a soul wouldn't follow you into harm;
death do we part, we brothers in arms.
Your children and grandkids will know of your deeds,
as you climb on the back of your war-ready steed.
As you're lowered into the ground that you've defended,
the love felt for you, my friend, will never be ended.
It's been my honor and privilege for me to have known
a person of your caliber, and for that I have grown.
This rose I lay atop of your eternal coffin;
these tears I shed now will return very often!
For all those memories we've shared throughout the years,
each one is worth more than a thousand tears!
