The Unknown Soldier

I stand at your grave.
I do not know your name.
I know not where you are from.
Where you fought,
nor where you died.

The horrors and pain you suffered,
were not in vain.
The death and destruction brought you pain.

I weep at your grave,
for the life you gave.
I weep for the Mother,
that gave you that life.

I kneel before your grave.
I bow my head in gratitude to you,
The Unknown Soldier.
Forever Remembered.

    Hi Donna, thank you very much. When I wrote this poem I had taken a trip to Ottawa Canada. I visited the First Response war memorial I was walking across the square and came across 'The Unknown Soldiers' grave. The emotions that came over me were so strong I literally sunk to my knees and wept, sobbing actually.I felt so grateful to someone who I never knew would willingly give their life for my freedom and privileges I enjoy today. Thank you for your family members who still fight and stand guard to protect people like myself, they should be honored for their service
