Never Forget

Everyone looks back today,
Remembering such great loss,
Knowing how much is owed by so many,
To so very, very few.

But I find myself thinking,
Not of what I owe to many,
Just of what I owe to one,
What I owe to you.

You saved me before I knew it,
Before you went to war,
You saved me from a hard life,
Saved me from being poor.

I look back as an old woman,
To that distant love affair,
We were proposed to be married,
And were so on the outburst of war.

We consummated our marriage,
A few short hours after our vows,
And then you volunteered yourself,
To protect the country you love.

You left me a little later,
You went out to war,
Your training had been short,
But of the importance you were sure.

You were gone a long time,
Fearing a Dear John,
Through this I was grasping,
Tight to my wedding ring.

A few months had passed by,
And a bump was slowly forming,
A letter sent to you,
Your reaction was astounding.

"My love, I am so happy,
To hear of our impending child,
I cannot wait to meet them,
And hold them in my arm."

Each and every night I worried,
I feared the utmost worst,
The pain I was expecting,
How much was your life worth?

The child was born to me,
And soon you returned home,
You saw your son and said to me,
His eyes looked just like mine.

When you went back out there,
To protect your new-born son,
Your bravery and gallantry,
You saved much more than one.

The one you didn't save though,
The one you didn't save,
Has left me torn and broken,
And kneeling at your grave.

Your medals were sent to me,
Your son didn't even cry,
Even the young boy,
Sensed the silence in the air.

I remember your gentle touch,
Your whispers in my ear,
Your kisses on my neck,
And your voice lives in my head.

I tremble as I remember,
You swept me off my feet,
I knew there would be no one,
To sit there in your seat.

I didn't mourn forever,
I just simply didn't want,
Another man to have me,
When with only you was I complete.

The air is torn now as I stand here,
Outside the Minster in the cold air,
The sky is blue and clear now,
As it was when I lost you.

The guns that start the silence,
Your son stands by my side,
Upon his chest he wears,
Your medals with great pride.

He only met you briefly,
But he honours and treasures,
His life was brought by you,
His hero and his pride.

He found himself wishing,
You could have seen his bride,
But knows you are watching,
And being his guiding light.

Your image never left me,
The scent that your body bore,
Still lingers unforgotten,
Every day I miss you more.

Lest we forget the fallen,
We forget our heritage,
But your leaving brought our future,
I will Never Forget.

I was fortunate to have known my dad, who also served his country. And as I was born on Nov. 11th, each year he and I celebrated together on the day at one of the many restaurants that honor veterans with a free meal. I lost him this year in July, so this was the first time in many years that we did not share the day together. Thank you for writing this lovely poem. It brought tears to my eyes.

This is a stark reminder of the incalculable cost of war, our’s and future generations must never forget that. This beautiful prose so eloquently expresses what me must strive to avoid and In remembering those who have fallen, act on our human right to seek peace above all else.

A beautiful tribute to our fallen heroes, and an intimate remembrance of a personal loss suffered by so many. Well done for helping us feel the loss and the pain. And thank you for helping us all remember on this Veterans Day (formerly Armistice Day, ending WWI at the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day of the eleventh month). My thanks as well to all who have served.

This is an amazing work of art with such clarity on love, loss and pride. There are a few times I wish I could give someone a 10 for their effort and talent - this is one of those times. Thank you (and thank you to those we should never forget).
