Forget Me Not...You Are Not Forgotten!
1. Forget me not. You are not forgotten. Fragile blue flowers blowing in the wind. To wrap the wounds...soft,white cotton. But don't forget the thorns...or the sin. 2. Golden leaves on silver trees. Yellow ribbons around the bases. From fragile spring to winter's deathly freeze. All I see are strangers and tear-streaked faces. 3. We can't see the light through the gunpowder haze. Blood and screams all around me. Everywhere are charred bodies in fiery blaze. The dying cry, "I am free!" 4. Shell-shocked veterans jump...to end the pain... War,the vicious circle...it kills. Killing begets killing...forever. To cleanse...rain. 5. Forget me not...You are not forgotten. We will all heal...it just takes time. The hard won peace we will feel. Forever the never-ending children's rhymes. sin, Tamarack Pines
Author's Notes:
I think i put all the wars America has been in before "desert storm" in this poem. another one where i took all that i knew and made one big poem about the subject. if it's depressing...it's supposed to be...war is depressing. no one returns from war happy...not totally. sin, Tamarack Pines
