On Memorial Day--Thank You Soldiers

I find the tune of "Taps" so haunting. Written during the Civil War, but so often used today. It always brings a tear to my eyes. For all soldiers, both living and gone, I dedicate this post

    Fading light dims the sight,
    And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
    From afar drawing nigh -- Falls the night.

    Day is done, gone the sun,
    From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
    All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

    Then good night, peaceful night,
    Till the light of the dawn shineth bright;
    God is near, do not fear -- Friend, good night.

On this Memorial Day I want to say thanks to my family's soldiers.
All of them.
