a poem dedicated to the three men who's lives i celebrate every year on remembrance by writing and then reading my poem.


I so hope it's true....

 
As I look to the sky and the stars for the smallest of sign,
I ponder how the years have passed so quickly, dear friends of mine.
Searching the clouds, the moon, thinking... somewhere out there,
Recalling the fateful day, taken so young, at times to painful to bare.
 
With our heads and hearts missing you more each and every day,
We often talk of you all, strength and courage yours, now our way.
At peace we hope, no more suffering for you, no more pain,
With the going down of the sun, I'll raise a glass and toast you once again.
 
We are gathered for here today amongst many a family and friend,
Please know we will never forget you all, parading here to our very end.
Sharing a story, a smile, a tear, a moment to remember,
We are forced to view the future but rejoicing your life each and every November.
 
We host 2 minutes of silence for you the fallen, the very brave,
Gave your all, affording our peace and freedom via your now, lonely grave.
I often wish time would hasten, in the hope my friend, of seeing you,
They say we will meet again...... I so hope it's true.
 
For Diggers, Flash and Jack
