Memorial Day Service – Our Lady of Assumption R.C. Church, Fairfield, CT

The crisp, precise calls of the leader
The Knights of Columbus marched proud
And strong through the aisles
The onlookers in the pews stared in amazement
Their purple feathers tossing and turning

The man’s words
Testimonies from one soldier
That told the story of millions of others
His last living letter
His goodbye to wife and family

Memorial Day
The somber tone and mood of the day
Thick with pride and honor in the air
The veterans in remembrance
Filled the seats as a tribute
To all those that didn’t make it

That’s what Memorial Day is all about
To credit all the dead that gave their
To let us all on the home front
