Veterans Day Poems, Salute the veterans

Salute those unforgettable heroes in Veterans Day by these Veterans Day Poems.

Veterans Day


By Taylor Weinman


Representing the red white and blue

The colors of our flag stand out proud and true.

The white stars on blue background with red and white stripes

Remind me of these veterans, who all risked their lives.

Just so the people of the U.S. could all live in peace and be free

These are the heroes that represent you and me.

They stood up strongly, untied as one,

And kept up the fighting until they were done.

And although some have fallen, and lost their lives in war,

We pray for each one of them.

And now that their souls live on forever more,

Above in God's hands.

They watch over our nation,

And give us strength to triumph over others with strong anticipation.

So every year, when this day comes by,

Think of all the veterans that while fighting, had to die.

And remember that they were people

With fire and passion embedded inside.

They die for this country,

So remember and honor them with pride


Veterans

by Brittany Skinner



They were there,

And they remember,

The shock, the horror

Of watching strangers die.

A life ended

By a fellow soldier's shaking hands.



The unimaginable debt,

Owed by a free world

Can never be repaid,

Still we try

Giving up an hour, a day

To thank you for the burden you now carry

Laid there so we can live our lives.



They fought,

And killed

Enemies with faces

Identities unknown to the bullets

Shattering the protective shield

Laid there by those they loved.



For one day a year we honor you

For our lives,

It can never compare

Still we try

Thanking you on this day

For a million moments

You lived so we could too.
