Pearl Harbor - Arizona Memorial by 


Untimely Heroes

Our stars and stripes
wave proudly amid
the distant memories
of a war gone by,
above the watery depths
that hold
precious earthen vessels.
In hushed silence
they come to honor
the souls lost amid the ages,
and weep for
those who made
the ultimate sacrifice.
Their tears fall upon the seas
and mingle with Black Tears
bubbling still from Arizona’s heart -
a solemn tribute to
untimely heroes.
