In Memoriam

She is not there with the crowds
Or the speech-makers
She comes quietly at evening time
When there is no band, no ceremony

And there, with just her thoughts
She remembers
And thinks
And prays for

A man whose face’s exact curves
Are harder to remember
With every passing year

A man
Who gave them everything he had

Except that one thing
That he gave instead

For his country
