Old Glory


I flew her when it wasn't cool cuz I new it was right. I have put her on graves cuz I new it was right. I have taken the time to untangle her from her halyard line cuz I new it was right. Brought her in out of the night and folded her with reverence cuz I new it was right. Cried when she was draped over a brothers coffin, folded with care and handed with respect to the next of kin cuz I new it was right. Sent her to my son when he spent 14 months in a hell and was given a CIB, cuz I new it was right. I pray that she will still hang beside my door when I am gone....cuz I know it is right
