    Mr Harrison, I was very moved by your words and expression. My dad was a WWll vet and my older brother and I are both 'Nam vets. Your poems are descriptive without being graphic, and complete without being wordy. I guess we keep the graphics in our heads, silently. Thank you for your work.

Best Poem of Cecil L. Harrison

War Is Never Over

War is never over
Thought the treaties may be signed
The memories of the battles
Are forever in our minds

War is never over
So when you welcome heroes home
Remember in their minds they hold
Memories known to them alone

War is never over
Nam veterans know this well
Now other wars bring memories back
Of their own eternal hell

War is never over
For I knew world war two
And I'll not forget the battles
Or the nightmares that ensue

War is never over
Those left home to wait know this
For many still are ...
