Dear Soldier

by Celeste, November’21

Dear Soldier,
You battled, in the sun and rain, 
Fought until the end
You tried to withstand the pain
Of the loss of a friend.

Dear Soldier, endless battles you fought,
Gunfire through the night
As you stepped of the dirty field
Dust in the morning light.

Dear Soldier, you and allies too
Worked hard to survive
You sacrificed your life for us
So we would thrive.

Dear Soldier, here lies in my hand
A symbolic poppy
To remind me of how you protected us
And of your legacy.
My soldier for school as we celebrate
Remembrance Day!
