Remember

Do not waste tears

on the soldiers

who are dead,

instead

weep for the maimed,

weep for the wounded.

 

and when you see them,

begging on the corner,

homeless, homeless and broken,

don’t begrudgingly

throw them a meaningless token,

a crust of dry stale bread,

or tarnished pennies for their eyes,

their glassy eyes when their dead.

 

Instead, give them love.

Give them shelter.

Provide them with a soft bed.

Bind up their bleeding.

Hug them, and tell them

you’ll never forget

their blood so precious and red,

blood they’ve so unselfishly shed

for our freedom.

 

Do not waste tears

on the soldiers

who are dead,
