In Remembrance

It’s Remembrance Day,
at Passchendaele,
as you laid a wreath,
for both sides,

your thoughts were occupied
with lost comrades,
as we stood silently
remembering your sacrifice
and the sacrifice of your comrades,
in every war.

you knowing more than any of us
that this war must
someday end.

for Harry Patch 17 June
1898 – 25 July 2009
