Remembering Vietnam


Today I remember
someone I met;
Back in October
We were a sure bet.
But time would not allow
Us to become one
You see he was an Army fellow
I gave him a son.
The memories he gave me
I shall always treasure
It's just a matter of time
We will be together, I'm sure.

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
