65 Years Later


You can't pay in money for what they have done

Bill Mauldin





I was woken by my youngest son

4:30 in the morning

“Daddy, Im sad,

will you tell me a story?

An Andrew the Bear story?”




I went out into my garden

laid some paving stone

admired a Robin

helped my teenage son

become a man




I kissed my daughters tears

helped her see the sun

enjoyed her smiling laughter

tonight, well all watch a movie





I gave my love a hug

will again tonight

between I will go shopping

spending the afternoon

as I wish




I could do so much

enjoy so much

live so much

because of the many

who gave so much
