Please Remember Me

entry picture

 

For those who sleep from battles lost

And paid, for us, the ultimate cost

 

For all who came back from war

Forever scarred by what they saw

 

The lucky ones, 

      so they say

They got to see 

       another day

 

But their friends who fell

At the toll of death's bell 

Still haunt their dreams

Upon the fields of screams

 

Where poppies now dwell

as a veil across hell

Where bones still lie

And the lost still cry:

 

Remember me, please!

Please, remember me!

 

I, in deepest earth

And, I, in deepest sea

 

Please, don't forget

Please remember me…

Thank you very much for your comments & constant support John, Stephen, Uilleam, Julie & John C. Always appreciated.
Just had the honour of having our reverend read my poem out as part of the memorial tribute for our village. Which got a brilliant turn out. Lest we forget

My heart is so full at this time, thinking of the suffering people go through in war...
I'm almost in tears, thinking of the world we are leaving for our children.
