 Remains of the Day

 

Classified a hero

Yesterday’s loss.

Made the sacrifice

At all cost.

 

Forty plus years

Hard to accept.

Anger to tears

Hope, I've kept.

 

Never leave behind

A motto preached.

Why he’s not found

No reason reached.

 

Remains of the day

A world apart.

Today’s memory

His purple heart.
