She stood like a stiff board
As the men carried the box
To it’s restful place.

Drapped on top of the pearl box
laid a flag adorned with
Stars and stripes.

The flag took her father’s place,
no more daddy dances nor
fishing with him.

Many shake her hand,
not one hold on too long,
Thanking her for his service.
This was in honor if Memorial Day here in the States. I have close ties to military families and my significant other is in the service. A wonderful yet gloomy day Memorial day is to remember the fallen.
