Where Flowers Grow

If words could resurrect the dead,

we would speak those words today.

If war was a solution to problems,

we would have no problems today.

If the past were not part of the present,

we would not be here today.

 

Today we recall all those names

who gave their lives to country

so that we might enjoy our liberty.

 

Let the memory of their courage

give us hope that their determination

is our bright, shining future,

that our future is worthy

of their singular dedication.

 

Today as we put flowers on graves,

plant a flower in your heart.
