The Measure of a Man Poem

By Robert Longley

The memories have faded
The scars have all been healed
We have but to be thankful
For the bounty of our yield
Many would hope for
But only few would find
The homecoming they dreamed of
Each night inside their mind
We owe it to their memory
To live each day with pride
Always share with others
The love you have inside
The measure of a man
Is based on how much he would give
To make sure that those they love
Can have the chance to live
