A moment of reflection on Remembrance Day

I have tried to post something on Remembrance Day every year that the Tale has existed and so this is what came to my thoughts on this day…

Memories

By TeraS

 
 

Another day arrives

and the world spins on

Life continues

as it is want to

 

The sun rises over

the green fields

The wind twirling

around the markers

 

Silence comes again

but not for long

Not this day

and only on this one

 

The hours pass

until the eleventh arrives

The fields once quiet

awakens to life

 

Families arrive

visit their own

Lovers arrive

visit their loves

 

Sons arrive

talk to their fathers

Daughter arrive

cry for their moms

 

Flowers are left

to show they were there

Mementos are kept

of the ones that remain

 

The moment comes

silence reigns once more

But with the ones

that remember making it more

 

In their thoughts

the passed are alive

In their minds

they speak again

 

Around them all

the markers stand

Unseen to the living

shadows of the past

 

Watching in hope

of those that remember

Their lives not wasted

for the lives they saved

 

The moment passes

and the shadows fade

Not their memories

they always shall remain

Please remember on this day.

    I always do. And thank you, Majesty, for jogging our memories so eloquently.

    Until we need no more poppies.

    Always on duty somewhere, keeping watch ready to do bad things to bad people.
