Beth Torah Poetry

Remembrance Day

We thank them for their sacrifice on this solemn day,
Those brave young souls who fought and died in lands so far away.
Some were only in their teens; they had full lives to live,
But for the sake of freedom, their young lives they did give.
We thank them for their courage too, the ones who did return,
What horrors did their young eyes see? This we’ll never learn.
When I watch my child at play in a land that’s free from war,
I think of them, those brave young souls, and all I’m grateful for.
For them we wear the poppy, and for us all we pray for peace,
To them we offer gratitude; our thanks will never cease.

-Sharron Elkouby, Poet in Residence
