Memorial Day… a poem I wrote

This is a poem I wrote last year. I hope you do not mind I posted it again. I want to thank all of you who fight for your country. Without you, there would be no country.

He was a very enthusiastic lad.
Who wanted, so much, to please his dad
He stood for bravery, honor, and pride
But, while doing so..unfortunately died

He left behind the symbol of hope
So while pursuing our dreams, we could cope
He gave us the courage to go on
Even though, from this world he is gone.

Freedom lives because of you
True Americans will NEVER forget all you knew
Fighting for your country was a dedication you accepted with all your heart
I only hope we will be as worthy to do our part.

So, when you look down upon us from above
I hope you can feel all of our love
I hope all Americans feel your pride
I hope they decide to join the right side.

Thank You to ALL who fought for us all.

Believe in Yourself;

Luisa Doraz

I will be away. See you soon. Stay well.

I can only imagine how you felt…
On those nights when the horror around you was crushing.
Your soul and your determination at battle with one another.

Your courage and your beliefs were your only comfort…
One you did not really want to share…
But one that was necessary for survival.

I want to thank you for those moments.
I want to honor you with all of my deepest respects.

May you know that I DO appreciate you and what you have done to make my life possible today.

Sincerely,

Luisa Doraz
