The Lost Of A Soldier

By 7th November 2012December 9th, 2019No Comments

My father was a soldier

He fought within a war

My mother told me

When I was only four

I saw the tears in my mother’s eyes

I saw the pain upon her face

She told me he served his country

In a God forsaken place

All we have left are memories

Of all the good times gone by

When I look at my father’s medals

It brings a tear into my eye

I watched my mother’s pain

And the courage to carry on

I was among thousands

Who lost a father on the SOMME?
