Remembrance!

Each November we always remember

our military forces lost.

From all the wars and trouble spots

young lives taken away!

Their loved ones never again to see

keeping their countries free!

 

Remembrance day the emotions are high

thinking of the fallen.

Some in their teens joined for adventure

travel and companionship.

But the reality of war zones was not fun

in the rain cold and hot sun.

 

Whatever the conditions they had to confront

the horrors and brutality of war.

Families cry and mourn with the memories

the list of names ever-growing.

Man revels in seeking new ways to destroy

something they seem to enjoy!

 

No matter what nation their lives should count

each had a history a soul.

Not just names on a plague or unmarked grave

individuals with much to give!

With hopes ambitions a destiny to follow

and those left to feel sorrow.

 

Remembrance and respect for the lost

the injured knowing the list will grow!

 

Their ultimate sacrifice we must never forget!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
