Poppy painting - Linda Stanley


 

We will remember them

 

Go forth in your numbers great or small

 

Place Those Wreath's or Poppies all

 

At Memorials that stand revered across this land

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

In our Cities_Towns and grassed Village greens

 

Memorials all record their own

 

One life! Or Ten Thousand all equal in death

 

Now is the time to Remember! Their sacrifice

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

For one minute!! Close your eyes
 

Then remember all those past and present

 

The dead the Dying and the wounded

 

Then those yet to fall in duty fulfilled

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Picture if you will the sights and sounds of horror

 

This is war! One is unable to escape

 

The sacrifices of the many
 

And that of! One man too

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Your minute’s up!
 

As you return to the Present

 

Look around and you will find

 

YOU’RE NOT ALONE
