Today, the Monday last of May
We honor those who paved the way
For freedom came because they stood
They bravely fought for what is good.
To those succumbed to early death
To those who gave their dying breath
To those who served and those who died
They sacrificed to give us life.
Let us, the living who remain
Take the mantle of those slain
That their brave deaths be not in vain
Let our resolve increase with pain.
May we all today remember
That beyond the glowing embers
Lie the heroes of our nation
May we honor, ne’er forget them.
