Not Overlooked (Veteran’s Day)

I did not forget

To Remember

Held honor close, hushed

Respect…where heart

Needs no calendar note

Veterans gone, and those

Serving proud…

Too many lost, marching yet

Amid dust, mud and mines

Mental battles, artillery loud

War which continues on and on

Ceaselessly savage, unrepentant

While hearth fires, vigil candles

Burn with aching devotion, the

Prayers of the penitent…

I did not overlook day

Marked for remembrance

Each hour the courageous

Bleed, fall, suffer torments

Mercy’s pleas rise to God’s throne

Murmured names of our veterans

Bittersweet incense
