Lest we forget!

by A Poets Handwriting aka ALISHA   Nov 13, 2012

The colour of the rose of love,
marks a day of remembrance.
Bells chime, as the clock ticks:
Lest we forget!

Green camo, muddy boots,
trenches dug deep, and
guns firing as death surrounds;
Lest we forget!

A red poppy worn upon breast
as we bow our heads in silence;
remember our brave soldiers.
Lest we forget!
