D- Day Soldiers` Request

Teach our young to remember the soldiers of today
and give honor to all who fought in that D-Day fray
..I am an old soldier.. who must now go home..
must go away.. leaving my memories alone
No one will be able to trace my footprints..
on the shifting sands of time
and all that will be left is bleached bones ..
of these memories of mine
Pray..teach the children to pass our story on..
so that our memory never dies ..
nor our honor ever be gone
May their new memories take root and flower
..and with the seeds..sow memories for tomorrow
of old soldiers who fought.. in America`s finest hour...

OHMAHA BEACH

Omaha Beach
 
I stand before greatness
...a witness to faithfulness
A picture of Omaha beach...
crosses as far as the eye can reach
...Hands helpless at my side
...on my face tears of pride...
for these brave soldiers...
who challeged Hitler`s Mob...
and etched their names in history
....by simply doing their job

(Not far down the road...
many French people grumble... and dance
Why do they not remember... the blood of Heroes
...that bought the freedom of France...)
