“I Have No Reply Sir”

February 7, 2017

“No reply sir.”

The sun spies through the trees and the breeze brushes across the cheeks of heroes past, with brittle bodies they’re still at attention with crisp uniforms and a love for their country that will forever last.

Here we gather also with them in quiet observance of their courage strength and grace. Their pain spills out upon us, all knowing someone else has died in their place.

May the yolk of grief be at least on this day, something we all can share. Please our Lord, never let their pain be more than they can bear.

As each name of a fallen hero is read, and emotions begin to stir. A salute; a single ring of the bell; and, “I have no reply sir”.

My tears try to hide as the doves released are flying now high above, search as I may, no words can be found to express my eternal love.

The sun spies through the trees and the breeze brushes across the cheeks of heroes past, with brittle bodies they’re still at attention with crisp uniforms and a love for their country that will forever last.

In memory of all those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
