D-Day

65 Years Later

 

"You can't pay in money for what they have done"

Bill Mauldin

 

 

Today

 

I was woken by my youngest son

4:30 in the morning

“Daddy, I’m sad,

will you tell me a story?

An Andrew the Bear story?”

 

Today

 

I went out into my garden

laid some paving stone

admired a Robin

helped my teenage son

become a man

 

Today

 

I kissed my daughter’s tears

helped her see the sun

enjoyed her smiling laughter

tonight, we’ll all watch a movie

together

 

Today

 

I gave my love a hug

will again tonight

between I will go shopping

spending the afternoon

as I wish

 

Today

 

I could do so much

enjoy so much

live so much

because of the many

who gave so much
