Red

Red

A Poem

by Katarzyna Pe on Unsplash

Red,
Petals fall as blood,
Tears are many,
As loved ones lost.

Young,
Barely more than children,
Gave their lives,
For our peace.

Remember,
These brave souls,
Off to battle,
But never to come home.

Poppies,
Our sign of remembrance,
We will remember,
We remember them.

Always.
Lest we forget,
The poppy bleeds red,
And we never forget.
