D DAY LANDINGS – FRANCE 06.06.1944

“Ode to fallen warriors
for they have silently given theirs

Ode to their mothers
for every day they continue giving
while sadness and despair
keep taking

Ode to the children
that were left behind
with remnant memories
of the mom’s and dad’s lives

Ode to the babies
that were never born
or the generations
that will ever see dawn

Ode to loves lost
the music that will neither
be written, played nor heard
The art that could have
been shared and given”
