Hi Kay. This is a wonderfully composed poem. Touching and eloquent in thought and content. It must be a terrible thing. Can't think of anything more painful than losing a child. The image of the young man is beautiful. Best of luck in the contest. Marilyn

This is a lovely poem Aussie, a duo, for Anzac day and for Mother's day. So many thought it was going to be the adventure of a lifetime while for too many it was the end of their life as they knew it. Nicely done, cheers Valda

    Hello Valda, Thanks for reading. I wanted to combine the two. Today is ANZAC Day in Aust. So different to all the other sacred days. We stood in our driveways, candle in hand to remember the fallen. Covid19 stopped gatherings everywhere today. We will remember them. Love, Kay.

    At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them. They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them. Thanks so much special friend, for reading and appreciating our sacred day. Blessings and love, Kace XX

What a tragic, but well-written, poignant poem with a sad memory for all mothers who experienced this heartbreak, Aussie. Your picture is perfect to pair with your heartfelt words. Your lines read well and the message is clear. So many young late teens and twenty somethings enlisted thinking of the adventure. However when they realized the scope of the war, it was too late. You present this dilemma well and that of the grief mothers felt and will feel forever--especially on Mother's Day. Thanks for sharing and best wishes. Respectfully, Jan

    Hello Jan, A day to go down in infamy. Australians stood in their driveways, candles lit. We could not gather to remember them because of the virus. The spirit of the fallen lives on in our hearts. Thank you for reading my friend. Love, Kay XX

This is so sad, my friend, but very meaningful. You've presented a mother's feelings very well in a horrible situation such as losing her son. During the world wars, so many young kids lied about their age in order to join up and serve their country.

So many brave young men had their lives cut short, and so many mothers grieved for lives that were unfulfilled in so many ways. This is a touching tribute. Thank you for sharing.

The bewailing agony of war. The worse though is spending four years fighting and killed on the road from the airport to home. That happened to my uncle. My website is: www.havepenwilltravel.co
