Poetry from within

Forget Me Not.

Although I知 no longer within your arms

For that ever welcome embrace

You値l feel my presence around you

In every mortal place.

For me the suffering is over

No more will I feel the pain

But I know that sometime in the future

We値l both be together again.

So think of me each and every day

As to the Heavens your eyes you cast

For the sorrow and loneliness you feel today

Will soon become a thing of the past.

Remember a Soldier always has two loves

A caring Mother and a beautiful Wife

But because he fights for his Country

In Combat it may one day cost him his life.

So weep not for me at my graveside

Where I know that my company you値l keep

So think of me now as I always was

Except that here I lie fast asleep.

For I know nevermore in your arms will , I, you hold

Nor from you anymore feel a warm caress

But always remember the love that we had

And try all the tears to suppress.

Look forward to a bright new tomorrow

With me just in another place

For I値l never forget the love of my life

Or the lovely radiant smile on your face.

So think of me each and every day

And as you lay down on your pillow to sleep

For I値l always be there to watch over you

As on my Heavenly watch I keep.

So live happy and healthy from now my love

And may you a long life complete

Then may you never have to say goodbye, but adieu

Until finally again we may meet.
