A poem for Remembrance Day...

Poppies Blood Red
Poppies blood red
With a centre of black
A reminder of war
You’re not coming back

The battles you fought
Were private, your own
And in the last conflict
You perished alone

No sleep for those living
I could not follow
First night filled with tears
Deep dark well of sorrow

Time passes, time heals
But scars will remain
My core’s been torn out
Life cannot be the same

Each November is marked
We remember the dead
A centre of black
And poppies blood red


  1. So poignant - thinking of you today.

  2. So true and pertinent Sarah, as Meg says, we're thinking of you.
