P O W - M I A Bracelet
Author: Shiloh

vinebar

who are you,
with your name engraved
in a steel band
worn on a wrist?

who are you,
with a date engraved
with your name
in a steel band
worn on a wrist?

who are you,
a son,
a husband,
a father,
a brother,
a nephew,
a grandson,
a dream shattered...
wrapped around a wrist?

who were you?

Never Forget

Great Poem. It takes me back to a subject that shouldn't be lost in the clouds of the past. It's possible for many of us to forget what will never be over for others.

bracelets of remembrance

You don't see them much anymore; these bracelets of remembrance. Replaced these days by those rubberized cheap imitations of something that really stood for something important. The Lives of those lost in another time and another place.

Well done as usual Shiloh.. Never give up never give in and hold your head up high. Your writings make sure that we never forget.. Thank-you

thank you...

thank you for your kind thoughts and words of encouragement... i appreciate it when someone sees what i am attempting, and often they give me a different slant on what i have written as well, so that i might see my thoughts through the eyes and mind of another... in this way the reader is my teacher... peace...
