Every Man Remembered! - Poem by Denis Martindale

Their names are there for all to see,
by those who still have eyes to see,
yet those being honoured each day
are now far beyond this world of pain,
but still remembered and more by those
who truly loved and knew them well,
who remembered shared joys and sorrows
and their hopes for their tomorrows...

Though many a man has gone, the debt goes on,
for every second of the peace that's ours
was bought and wrought by blood...
and it was theirs, dear friends, all theirs...
They fought shoulder-to-shoulder, for us...
and thus more fondly called to mind by poppies,
Remembrance Day crosses... and tears...
for they are still loved... while every man
is found worthy of his remembrance...

Denis Martindale, copyright August 2014.

A tribute to the RBL's Poppy Appeal and
the Every Man Remembered! campaign...
