My First Poem Ever Written

THE MEANING OF A POPPY

Why do we wear a poppy, only one time of year?

To show them that we really care and that we'd like to share.

Share their grief, their sorrow and all the pain they bear,

To share the love we have for them and thank them for their care.

You see, they fought in a war, a war of blood and shame

They used real guns, real bullets, It really was no game.

So when you wear a poppy, please remember this

When those guns were fired, the bullets seldom missed.

God bless.
