A Poem Of Remembrance

Honoring the life of others as well as our own. A love poem for Veterans Day, a memorial poem.

Don't tear love apart. (EXPLORED!)

The Heart Remembers

once a year we remember

those who fell before us.

some fell before we were born

and we never knew them.

some fell in our life time

and we never knew them.

we hear their stories

from the news and family.

we learn about their lives

and how well and good they lived.

this day is often one of sadness,

causing us to pause and think

of what was and what could have been.

and now when I part from a loved one

I always say, “I love you” and

“I am always with you” because

you never know when they will fall

and not be remembered

except in my quiet heart...
