Yesterday was the anniversary of D-Day; the first in over a decade I didn’t sit around Mr. Tom’s kitchen table and listen to him reminisce about the events of those days, particularly about a few of the men lost from his ship. So, I remembered for him.

I Remember

I remember (because)

You remembered (because)

You were there (because)

You were sent (because)

You joined (because)

You wanted to escape.


I remember (because)

You cannot remember (because)

You are gone (because)

That’s how life goes (but)

No one is forgotten (as long as)

They are remembered.
