A Poem for Memorial Day

I wrote this a few years ago and think it is very appropriate for Memorial Day.

The Flag That Flies Above Us

The flag flies above us
Do we ever stop and look
Do we notice the blood red stripes
and the blood those stripes took

Do we see that feild of blue
or the fifty stars of white
Each shine individually
but together, infinitely bright

What do these show me?
They show the price that was paid
For some it was but a brief service
For other, the greatest sacrifice was made

These few did stop and look
With Respect and honor in their eyes
Because of their courage and valor
The red, white, and blue still flies.
