Because We Should Never Forget





To those who gave their all,
Or took the risk, 
To those who still do,
So we can go to work
And home
To church,
To school,
With shoes.
So we can travel 
Or marvel
As we watch the day unravel
In a garden,
On a hilltop,
Or from picnics in the park
So we can sit with kin a bit
Beneath the star-frothed dark
Or stroll through
Supermarkets
With shopping baskets
So we can cook,
Bake,
And linger
With loved ones
After dinner
Over tea and cake
So we can stop
At Hospitals,
Greenhouses,
The mechanic,
Coffee-shops,
Or grandma’s house
Without
So much
As a second thought

Thank-you
