Mortality!

There are times when our mortality is really felt

traumatic experiences as in wars

when for those whom you care do not return

or an unexpected terrorist act

without warning are taken in everyday life

this is becoming more rife!

 

The moment of the funeral cortege and draped

or flower covered coffins

that empty feeling loved ones forever missing

those growing epitaphs

annual memorial services and minute silence

recharges our defiance!

 

Never forgotten they live on within us all evermore!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
