Flags Upon The Graves


I went to visit you today,
the flag upon your grave;
blowing gently in the breeze,
so many, like a wave.


Fallen heroes who fill the earth,
fought proudly and so brave;
I stand here with respect and awe,
for what so many gave.


These soldiers lived through battles past,
the way to glory paved;
for you and me, America,
sweet liberty is saved.


I went to visit you today,
Old Glory, 'pon your grave;
Fifty stars, red, white, and blue ,
home of the free and brave.
