Photograph In My Mind


Soldiers Gather for Twilight Vigil at Fort Hood

Please don’t cry

When I turn a way

For I must go

And this you know

I have to do

What is right for me

I must serve

In the  military

Please dry your eyes

And smile for me

Let me savor

It in memory.

  1. Truly beautiful! You may not know that Awakenings is dedicated to our soldiers. With that being said, I would like to feature this poem on the Awakenings blog. [It is Blogspot so I cannot just reblog.] Do you have anything special you would like to share as to what inspired this writing? Let’s correspond via email: poetrybysharla@gmail.com
