REMINISCE

To seek and find
Those left behind
To remember distant wars

To laugh and sing
The ‘morrow would bring
To ponder distant stars

When tempting fate
trying to navigate
The encompassing ring of fire

When the drums of war
Sounded a hallowed score
Of a comrade’s lifeless form

To remember the years
The trail of tears
The end of a lifetime storm
