They are Remembered by TeraS

Candle of RemembranceIt is my personal tradition that on this day, at this time, I pen something in remembrance.

The words themselves cannot, truly, express what has been lost, been sacrificed. We cannot, really do so. But we can give thanks and remember.

 

 

They are Remembered
By TeraS

They stand in the moment
Their thoughts their own
They recall lives
Their memories clear

The days past
They remember
The lives lost
They recall

A moment of laughter
They smile
A moment of tears
They shed

Sharing a drink
They once tasted
Sharing fears
They come again

Seeing the battle
They cry out
Seeing them fall
They look away

Celebrating the end
They cheer
Celebrating the loss
They reminisce

Time passes on
They live on
Time wears on
They push on

Forgotten heroes
They do not
Forgotten sacrifice
They cannot

Remembering their faces
They can like yesterday
Remembering their voices
They hear like they are there

Remember for a moment
They salute
Remember them
They do
