Remembering D-Day 73 Years Later

Remembering D-Day 73 Years Later

Image result for dday


Men some young, some old

Some in between
Scared, shaking in their skins
They find the inner courage
The stamina and the bravery
To go to war    
On distance shore
They battle waves
The wicked weather
To face tanks, big guns and men
Trying to take land
To end the war
To save their families
For tyranny and strife
To find peace
Who gave their all
So we could end the war
To have peace again
And enjoy the fruits of life
So on this day 73 years later
We remember their sacrifice
And every day
For their love of country
And home they forfeited
Peace of mind, fear and life
Some gave their lives
Others their peace of mind
There are now words to thank them
