Remember (A Poem)
The skies are clear, now
The guns are silent, now
The land is still, now
Just hours before, the same land
Was ridden with death, darkness, grief
Now everything has an aura of
What we wanted, for so long:
One soldier, black in silhouette
Against the golden setting sun
Makes his way through this land
Helmet in hand, relief in heart
They are finally returning
To the place they missed, for so long:
Although the end has finally come
The memories will remain in our minds
Our hearts with those loved
Our thoughts with those lost
And what they fought for so long:
Ashley Budrick, 2010
