We Will Remember

As an act of Remembrance for those who died at Passchendaele a 100 years to this day. Please find a second poem, taken from my forth coming War Poetry Collection: 'Remember Me With Love - Poetry in Conflict' out later this year.

Our boys.

Bodies slumped in delirium.
Beautiful, fragile brave young men.
Yesterday a farm hand,
Ploughing in the field.
Lives lost in war now.
No more, what they were then.
Compassion in their hearts,
Fighting for the cause.
Giving us their lives.
What more was their love for?
