Poem -

D DAY (BEACH IN FRANCE)

 
75 years ago I landed on a beach in France 
Not for a holiday and not for romance  
Me and my comrades were there for war 
What were we fighting for I'm not really sure 

Some came back and some did not 
All were left in a difficult spot 
I was lucky I came back home alive 
Now it's the anniversary of seventy five 

Remember us all before you go to bed 
Particularly the ones that ended up dead

We must never forget or history will repeat itself...Freedom is never free..and comes at dear cost.  Great dedication. xo

A real time for reflection on the harsh realities facing the world then..and the silent heroism that was displayed by so many valiant men and women..an excellent reminder Kieran! Xx

Thank you for your poem.  My dad also, landed in France and fought in WWII and lost a close friend. He was not one to talk about it, but all of you are heroes.  Thank you for your service.  My dad has ;passed many years ago.

Hi there Shirley

Thank you for your comment.

Sorry to advise you but this poem was done not on a "personal" level. 

However I very much agree that all of them are heroes and should never be forgotten
