Nevada Gold Star Moms & Families
“Turned to Gold”
I think the saddest day that someone ever told
When someone tells a mother that her blue star turned to gold.
Her head goes up so proudly while her heart within her dies
She may be choked with sorrow but she never cries.
She has waited for days on end for the war to pass
When she could see her son again and hold him close at last.
Now, the news has come in words so bleak and cold
Which tells her what she fears; Her Blue Star Has Turned To Gold.
The Final Roll Call
We thought of you with love today but that is nothing new
We thought about you yesterday and days before that too
We think of you in silence we often speak your name
Now all we have are memories and your picture in a frame
Your memory is our keepsake with which we’ll never part
God has you in His keeping we have you in our Heart
