do you remember?

by Sunfire

Age Group: Adult

do you remember
when he announced his decision?
his signature on the paper
his oath already pledged
his mind made up.

do you remember
seeing him in uniform the first time?
proud smile on his face
dignity in his posture
determination in his heart.

do you remember
the time he had to say goodbye?
seabag on his back
adventures on his horizon
a future uncertain.

do you remember
all the letters and phone calls?
the excitement in his voice
the stories he would tell
the plans he was making.

do you remember
the day you got the news?
solemn uniform at your door
sympathy in his eyes
telegram in his hand.

do you remember
a flag draped over the casket?
buried in the cemetery
next to his fellow sailors
lost in the same battle.

do you remember
rows upon rows of white crosses?
people who gave their lives
fighting for a free country
paying the ultimate price.
