Fools like me

In Arlington there is a place
that makes me sad each time I face
the row on row of marble stone
that mark the graves of men so brave.


Stones standing far as eye can see
brave men that fought for liberty.
Brave men that fought so long ago
that we might stand and we might know
a country free with liberty
brave men that died for fools like me.


I walk the path between the stones
I kneel and read the name
I bow my head and say a prayer
of thanks for men like he
a prayer of thanks for one who fought
to keep our country free.


So go some time down to this place
and walk the path and touch the face
of head stones standing row on row
where brave men died that you would know
that freedoms bell is ringing still
it's ringing now and always will
by men that died for liberty
brave men that died for fools like me......


Seajay the sailor man



God bless the troops that give us liberty......

Very nice, I drive past the FT Riley cemetery twice a day and will never forget what they have given for me.

Yep, I thought of the poem this morning while laying in bed with My Willa. I have been to Arlington several times and it always hits me hard when I see the head stones of so many brave people that gave their life for me to be free.

You are probably thinking of the poem ''The Tree'' where the author says ''poems are made by fools like me''. I wasn't trying to steal his line but part of it seemed to fit my poem also.

God bless our troops ......
