In Remembrance, a birthday poem in memory of @mykalday1  ‘s father by Tracy Diane Miller

Today is your birthday
In remembrance I see
The moment to honor you
As you would have turned eighty-three

The past welcomes shadows
Moving images of times had
The memories to cherish
Not to be sad

A war you served
Bravely you fought
The protection of freedom
Is what you sought

Rest in Heaven
No more pain will come your way
But you are remembered
On your birthday
