Remember Them: 11th of the 11th
This is a poem I hope you can all relate to – I pray the day never comes when we forget to remember them:
Close your eyes, these two minutes mark
the time to remember those who were ripped from our hearts.
We will always mourn for them
let now be the time our thoughts are as one with them,
for those far-away, who may come back one day
and those who have fallen, never to return,
be it past or present, distant or absent
may our love for them burn as bright
as the poppies we wear with pride to mark their plight.
They lost their lives so we could live ours
the least we can do is remember them today
on the 11th month, of the 11th day, of the 11th hour,
for silence speaks louder than any words we could say.
