I was watching a flag flap in the wind while waiting for a ride home...


Wave that flag ever so high!
Wave that flag with beaming pride!

You and I will be surprised
How many flags will fly in the sky

From Far and Wide, From every country, they shall fly
Hailing! Their long and historic land
Remembering the long and forever Gone

Wave that flag ever so high!
Wave that flag with tremendous pride!

For the ones of long long past
Those gave their lives to see it last

Wave that flag ever so high
Wave that flag with mounting pride!

Through the flags of our dear world
We, the people, will surely recall

Memories of those who have lived

Long gone, sorely missed,

Left in our distant past
