Set This Day
Set this day aside for remembering ~
Reflections of things already in my mind;
Of other days and simpler ways,
And loving thoughts of another time.
We can’t go there, except to say
The thoughts we have of them,
Who loved and cared and acted
More, than this, our yearly whim.
The souls who fought for freedom’s way,
So far displaced from home,
The victims. falling by the side
Of harms way - all alone.
The loved ones who have taught so much
Send down their traits by genes;
So personal, so cherished, and
In our children now are seen.
For those who fell by “calling” to
A lost world needing Love,
Who gave their last full measure
To bring that Name beloved.
To little ones who never saw
The sunlight of one day;
And have no marker, nor even mound,
To say they’ve gone away.
And all the while remembering ~
They all were once as I....
And hope there’s someone willing
To mourn me...when I die....
