Fallen Soldier


Watching you from above.

Through your worst 

and your happiest times.

Bursting with pride and hope.

But have you forgotten

what I have done?

Have you forgotten my sacrifice?

I offered up my life, for what?

For you not

to remember me?

Everyday I imagine me beside you.

My sweet child.

What happened to me was lethal.

I watch your tears

everytime you visit me.

I remember you care.

But why not show

that I am one of the fallen?

My sweet grandchild.

I have seen the new era

but it's without me beside you.
