Charlie!

Charlie stood tall by a white cross

surrounded by thousands more

to the living the cemetery empty

but he was not there on his own

by each one many others stared

more deaths added to the toll

as on that yearly memorial day

for their loss the living did pray!

 

Each one their futures were taken

generations that never existed

families still reflecting the void

as more joined a premature end

peace had never been reached

the mood charged with dread

infinite ghosts haunted the living

for the majority life unforgiving!

 

Once more Charlie could only view

as a spectator the growing queue!

Together

They had been together for sixty years

never knowing anybody else.

In love and never apart only in the war

happy contented and loyal.

Having their families always close by

the unity nobody could deny.

 

From their first meeting they both knew

destiny was being together.

Love blossomed and were soon married

but Charlie joined the army.

And Annie worked in the local factory to

while the first-born was due.

 

Never wealthy life was hard yet were happy

five children brought up well.

Enjoying their grandchildren into old age

sadly Charlie became ill.

Passing leaving Annie his life to celebrate

a wonderful life long mate.

 

The family knew mum could never be sad

as their love bridged death!

Understanding his physical body had gone

yet their spirits intertwined.

Less than a year later Annie quietly died

now Annie was by Charlie’s side!

 

Nobody mourned as mum and dad were with them!
