    GOING TO THE GONE
    A checklist for Memorial Day

    by Greg Asimakoupoulos
    May 23, 2008

    Go look in on your children still asleep
    within their bed.
    Remind yourself they're safe and warm
    because of some long dead.

    Go for a walk through cemeteries
    lined with little flags.
    Take time to ponder homebound heroes
    flown in body bags.

    Go stand between those granite stones
    engraved with names and dates.
    Imagine all who died defending
    our United States.

    Go on and kneel beside a marker
    offering a prayer
    with gratitude for those who gave their lives
    defeating terror.

    Go home and count your blessings
    from the hands of those now gone.
    Then vow to the Almighty that their
    mem'ry will live on.
