One Moment on Remembrance Day by the Succubi Queen…

This is Remembrance Day and so the Succubi’s Tale pauses today for a moment. One that matters. To us all.

One Moment

By TeraS


Once a year a day comes

to think about the past . . .

to think about what some gave . . .

the day we’re asked to pause

just pause for a short minute

on the eleventh month . . .

eleventh day . . .

eleventh hour . . .

It comes and then passes.


Once a year a day comes.

Most forget that day.

It is not important . . .

it is not relevant . . .

it does not matter . . .

they say that and more.

That is their right.

It is their choice.

But they all forget

why they have the right

to forget the lives . . .

to forget the sacrifice . . .

to forget the lost . . .

to forget the maimed . . .

to forget the forgotten . . .


Once a year a day comes.

Some will never remember.

Some will never forget.

Some will never see.

Some will never be able to ignore

what happened for a moment

that took something away . . .

that left part of them behind . . .

that can never be brought back.


Once a year a day comes.

I cannot understand . . .

I cannot experience . . .

I cannot feel . . .

I cannot . . .

because I was not there in that moment.

But I can pause . . .

I can cry . . .

I can wish . . .

I can give

one moment . . .

Can you?

Something to think about in the world that we are privileged to see.

Special thank you to James as always with his help in my scattered words…

The Succubi of the Week will return next week as usual.

    I am not the one who needs thanking today, though so so many do.

    As for the words, not scattered at all. I barely even polished, Majesty.

    Every year, since I met my hubby, we have attended services together and it is a tradition that I write something to mark this day… I even change the banner image of my Blog to that of a field of poppies too on the 11th…

    We donate to the Legion regularly as well… There are veterans in our family as well and it is the least we can do for what they have done for us all…

    *huggles*

    Thank you for all you and yours have done for us all…
