Remembrance Day Poem

In Gratitude of Silence

By: Debbie Holick

Silent now the soldiers sleep, their tales long laid to rest.
I knew them not yet still I weep and place a poppy o’er my breast.

They were husbands, brothers, fathers, sons; so valiantly they fought.
On shores stained red,on hands and knees; it was our freedom that they sought.

Courageously they stood their ground but freedom carries a cost.
Thousands of men were wounded and countless lives were lost.

So in gratitude of silence and all those who have served,
sleep now, you have earned it. Your peace is well deserved.

live with intention.

walk to the edge.

listen hard.

practice wellness.

play with abandon.

laugh.

choose with no regret.

continue to learn.

appreciate your friends.

do what you love.

live as if this is all there is.

 

I know nothing about Mary Anne Radmacher except this poem/quote is credited to her, and I love it. 🙂

When I worked at an office downtown that I haaaaated I used a mug that had this quote on it, every time I felt squashed by the cubicle walls and corporate culture (which fyi, was every day!) I would re-read the quote and remind myself the job was temporary, there would one day be an end to the torture and if the fates were with me I would one day make enough money acting I would never be in such a situation again.

I may not be making money at my acting yet but I got away from that company and am working somewhere that isn’t nearly as bad, phew! Escape is a good thing! lol
