Lullaby For The Fallen

This is one of my favorite photographic reminders that freedom isn't free. I wanted to post it here this Memorial Day in remembrance of all the fallen heroes from all of America's struggles for freedom. And I also wrote a song, sung to "Secreit Nicht" by the all-girl group Mediaeval Baebes. "Secreit Nicht" has such a melancholy melody; it's perfect for honoring The Fallen, today or any day. God Bless America, her warriors, and their families, and may all of you have a blessed and mindful Memorial Day.

Lullaby For The Fallen
by Seane-Anna

Sleep now, warrior.
Sleep now, hero.
Here in my heart.
Here in my soul.
Son of mine
so brave,
so young.
Your task is done;
take up now the
peace of blood.
I'll weep for you
while you lie still
in gloria.
