The Memorial. by Tracy Bucknell on Saturday, 5 November 2011 at 16:04 . I sat beneath your majesty, pondering my intent, perusing the shadows of your sacrifice, weighing the balance of hero's, against my upcoming event. As I sat in morose contemplation, of the dilema I did face, and read the names of those sacrificed, so I could make choices in this way. I wondered if you'd diiberated before you went to war.. if you'd looked around you and wondered, what was it all for ? how many people would understand the meaning of your life ? and weigh the balance of family, love and eternal strife. and wether if you'd never gone, would you still be with your wife ?. I contemplated ages when marriage was for life. I envisioned you in blood filled fields,where now the poppies grow and wondered if in years to come , would anyone ever know.... how on the eve of my wedding day, as I sat in contemplation, I thanked you for the life you gave, and embraced my destination.
