Remember - Unfinished Life


We came across a gravestone white,
So stark in a lush, foreign field,
In memory of an unknown lad
Who fell that our wounds might be healed.

No name was scribbled upon that stone,
Just these poignant words from the strife;
"The greatest sacrifice of all
The gift of an unfinished life".

This poem is on a gravestone,
in a British military cemetary
somewhere in the UK.

The midi you are listening to is called, 'Remember' by Andy Williams.
