If You Are Able
 

 

 

 


If you are able

 

Save for them a place inside of you

 

And save one backward glance

 

When you are leaving

 

For the places they can

 

No longer go

 

Be not ashamed to say

 

You loved them,

 

Though you may or may not have always.

 

Take what they have left

 

And taught you

 

With their dying;

 

And keep it with your own.

 

And in time when you decide

 

And feel safe to call the war insane,

 

Take one moment to embrace

 

Those gentle heroes

 

You left behind...
