Amidst a pearly sea of white,
Beneath a floor of green,
Lay the keepers of the flag,
To guard eternally,
They kept us safe throughout the years,
Pay homage now must we,
To those who fought for our freedom,
The saviors gone- Now seen.
Here is the recording of myself singing it. I'm sorry for singing so softly, it was 11pm when I took the recording and my sisters were already asleep.

My husband is currently deployed, he's in rescue. It's very hard to read stuff like this, knowing that he flies into dangerous places every day.
It's beautiful. Thank you.

Wow. I love the imagery that you used for a cemetery. It's very clever.

Thank you. It was the thought that popped into my head walking the paths of the Arlington Cemetery and viewing all the buildings and tombstones of marble.

Thank you, and I was at odds with myself over which I would use. In my tune, 'eternity' sounded better, which was why I used that one, but I can change it =)

true I have not heard your tune so I can not judge that but i must say eternally paints a better mental image. I can't really picture eternity.

Alright, its been fixed, and I'll go see if I can borrow my mother's phone for a moment to record the tune once on piano, and once with me singing =)

There are no words to describe the beauty of your words. It has moved me to tears. As the daughter of a U.S. Army Vietnam Veteran, all I know I can say is Thank You...Thank You so much. :happycry:

You are very welcome. My family is also deeply entwined within the folds of the military. My great grandfather was in WW2 in the 12th Armored Division, and was also a POW. My uncle was a Vietnam veteran, my brother training for the air force, and my Father is going to Afghanistan this July for the third time. I have met the last of the Pearl Harbor saviors, and witnessed the pain of veterans who come back from war. This past week my family was in Washington DC, in Arlington Cemetery and I wrote this on my iPod as I walked through the rows of tombs, searching for my great grandfather. I understand how it is.

Both of my grandfathers were WW2 Vets. One died 5 years before I was born. The other died April 18th of last year. Again, Thank You :huggle:

Wow, I'm sorry for your losses. My great grandfather died five years ago on new years eve, four days before my younger sister was born. And again, you are very welcome. =)
