You kept your faith with cannons flaming when cowards left, their souls ablaze. You kept your trust--thy will proclaiming-- from none but death to sing your praise. Your word has always been its treasure when pain and suffering claimed their due. You never sought a languid pleasure from less than what you knew was true. You always treasured those in passing, just as those whose hearts you held. Your bond to life is everlasting far beyond what grace compelled. Your legacy is yet to be written; the end is not what you have done. It's toll is measured in lessons given and lived with pride by this fathers son. If Poetry Contest Sposored by Silent One 10/18/2018 1st. Place

Oh those cowards, fantastic entry for the contest Charlie.. A son will always look for a bond with his father, how sad some do not achieve or have the opportunity to do so... Congratulations on your first place in the contest..
