For Those Who Have Gone On. {Military Poem}

Postby Zarn Ishtare » Wed Jul 02, 2014 9:52 pm

It doesn't take much

a flag waving, a church bell tolling

to make me remember you

I will love you, through all the long years

and burnish bright your memory.

Forgive me. I will try. Try to keep your name

in the mouths of all who knew you

and honor your fame

until my own flame passes.

God, stand in the gap for them

who went ahead, and died in place of me.

Semper Fidelis,

R.I.P.

Yes, sir. I just wasn't sure what to say that wouldn't sound dry and shallow in comparison to the meaning of the poem. Respectful silence and all that.
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? -Micah 6:8 KJV
They have shewed thee, O teen, what is good; and what doth the world require of thee, but to fit in, be wealthy, have good looks, and be rebellious? -Peer Pressure 1:1
"I hate milk; it's like drinking vomit." -Edward Elric and me. :fmed:
