SEA OF FACES

By 17th July 2006December 9th, 2019No Comments

See us!

We are not just pictures
Pieces of a tableau
Or parts of a mosaic
To make you weep

We lived and breathed
Held children in our arms
Hugged family before we left
And many only have that memory

Think only of us as we were
Not this two dimensional nothingness
That has no depth of us
Your memories will add that

Remember
We are not the coffins you see
The flag draped
Or the stone calved with a name
We are your heart

If pictures make pictures
Then know this
The picture we would make is of “The Union Jack”
And the map of this United Kingdom
