A moment to think

If you are able save for them a place
inside of you and save one backward glance
when you are leaving for the places they came.
No longer go be not ashamed to say you loved them though
you may or may not have always.
Take what they have left
and what they have tought you with their dying
and keep it with your own.
And in that time when men decide
and feel save to all the war insane
take a moment to embrace those gentle heroes
you left behind.
