who will remember?
'Who will remember?'

I don't know you, just a name on stone,
surrounded by crosses yet buried alone.

Is your life forgotten? Your sacrifice lost?
Have you died in vein? Who will remember
freedom's cost?

People walk by without a glance at you grave.
Why souled they care for those who for America
they're lives they gave?

They dead after all, what's the point to remember?
Graves are the same from March to December.

And yet as they say the dead have no voice,
wont someone remember the man who made
a hero's choice?

No, the dead can not speak nor can they hear,
but wont someone remember those who fought
for our freedom so dear?

For once they were alive filled will spirit and life,
they fought, cried, and bled going through appalling

Who will remember the pains of past, the blood and
tears both shed? The victory's and loses both come and gone,
the living and the dead?

Wont someone take the time to hold crying mother's, remember
those who died, feel the pain of once were brothers?

To bow your head in remembers to those who've kept us fee.
to kiss the wooden crosses of those who's happiness will never

We must remember for the price of freedom is so high,
in forgetting we would fail all the ones who had to die.

And in the wind above the graves this question will softly blow,
who will remember the ones who now and days ago?
