A Nation lives forever – indebted to your lives
You gave away your spirits, left behind your wives.
When one fell down, another would stand
To die for his country in a foreign land.

Together they fought ‘till the enemy lost
Fought for our freedom, whatever the cost.
I can come and go whenever, wander where I please -
Because of you a nation lives and breathes in ease.

Thank you for my life and freedom, my ability to roam
Because of you I can be proud to call this nation home

This poem is in honour of all the family members who have lost a loved one. The emotional pain and loss is beyond comprehension for them. My heart goes out to you..........

Dedicated to all the brave soldiers who have lost their lives since my last post ... RIP ...

Another One Gone

The morning paper
Held familiar news of
Another soldier
Sacrificed…
A burnt offering on
The altar of war.

Another one gone.

Like seconds on a clock,
Each one lost
Is gone forever,
Never to be regained.

Such a loss means
One less bouquet of roses,
No more teddy bears, and
Silenced pillow talk.

Another one gone.

Some flags wave high above
Ribbon-adorned trees,
While others tuck in
Those who sleep for eternity.

Public speeches stir up
Conflicts of support and dissent;
Private mourning fuels
A forever-altered normality
For those left behind.

Another one gone,

Though never forgotten,
Despite the endless names
Flowing like rivers
Past the gate of eternity

Dedicated to all the brave soldiers who have lost their lives since my last post ... RIP ...
