“Heroes” by Mary Serenc

Heroes

 

Clap, yes clap loudly

For only they know the suffering

Memories etched in time-worn faces

Framed in the windows of the RSL bus.

 

Clap, clap hard

For the years unlived,

For those left behind.

 

Clap, don’t stop

For the ones still marching,

Medals hanging heavy on their hearts.

 

Clap for them

Clap for them all,

For only they know

The silent horror of war.
