Don't Forget

entry picture

 

The unknown soldier beckons

 

Don't forget, don't forget

 

The lost, who somewhere lie

 

Don't forget, don't forget

 

The grieving family ties

 

Don't forget, don't forget

 

The defeated & the broken

 

Don't forget, don't forget

 

with mental scars unspoken

 

Don't forget, don't forget

 

The veteran in the street

 

Don't forget, don't forget

 

beneath his cardboard sheets

 

Don't forget, don't forget

 

And you & I, still breathing

 

Don't forget, don't forget

 

This free air from the bleeding

 

Don't forget, don't forget, don't forget

 

11th November

 

Time itself may fray

But, this will always be

Their Day

Timely indeed. The repeated rhythm of the line "Don't forget,
don't forget" works well.
