In Loving Memory......

The flag was flown at half mast today.

A last salute to you.

Wind ripping my heart from my chest.

While the silence ensued.

The words were spoken softly.

Tears framing my face.

Everyone bowed their heads,

Then the bugle played.

The flag folded neat and tidy.

A testament of you.

Placed in my brother's lap.

Stars and stripes forever blue.

Its over so quickly, yet it is not.

Too unreal to be true.

Tomorrow is just the beginning

of life without you.

We will "keep on keeping on"

And go on being strong.

As long as we are together

Because that is what you would do.

-love you Dad,

love Wag
