To my friend, a veteran


He sat there alone

Friends long gone

Years have moved on

Memories hang on

~

He was once a young man

Strength in his hands

pain has replaced it

like much of his life

~

Bravely he served others

Like others of his generation

I wonder if he understand how much

we are greatful

~

Thank you!

Unpardon me but I relent it boldly;
For it is far ahead, if I can be sure of it,
And far it is, that my hallucination be valid,
And hallucination it is, as it should be,
And however, unlike itself, mysterious, unknown, and untested,
So it be foreseen in my tireless search.

Richard,
Very moving poem, I think the Veterans feel forgotten and most of them are. Love this. I wish things could change for them.

Many blessings,
~Linda
