Lest We Remember

It’s easy to forget

As poppies bloom in winter gloom

Reminding us that time of year is near

Yet we choose to forget

grow flowers in our shirt

As if the hurt

And pain

Was all in vain

Yet we remain

Unchanged

For to truly remember would be to invite

The pain and bitterness of the fight

To darken our sight

And we fear we might have to adjust

We forget because we must

So we plant our poppies

Each November

Lest we remember…
