#100WCGU – Wk113 – Prompt: …photo… – 100 words – “Eternal”

18 Nov

“Buy a poppy for Remembrance Day?”

I handed over the money and clipped the poppy on my jacket yet I needed no reminder. It was a day always important for my father, one he honoured in memory of his comrades who never returned, one he raised us to respect. He’d suffered the horrors of war and returned when many hadn’t.

The silence… I pause and think of him and others I had known.

He has long since joined his comrades, those remaining grown so few. Life goes on. The ranks have thinned yet they will live eternal in our memories.
