Diana Chartier


War took you away,
            loved ones remained,

      waiting anxiously.

On land and in air,

      You fought for your country;

           Too many were against it.


You came home,
     to a new world,

         Radically different.


Streets crowded with ANGER.

They hated you;

            without knowing why

Too late to tell you,
                     we understand, but

lessons were learned.


That we continue living free,

Thank you for serving



 for absorbing
                    the Pain,

for diminishing

                    the Worry,

for easing

        the Fear

                                YOU ARE REMEMBERED
