November 11, 1987

 

quiet

all we hear now

the muted hum of our machines

unable to observe

our respect

for a sacrifice

forty years old

or more

our nations heroes

now dead

these forty years

their stories but

tales passed on

down the line

of we who live

with hope for tomorrow

thanks to those

for whom our tomorrow

never came
