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…



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.
