Two Minutes…

“Me?
Be silent for two minutes?
That’s a bit over the top don’t you think?”

I did think…
For two minutes;
I thought on, as the world around me stopped for two minutes –
Or continued.

I thought back
To back then;
When,
For lots of young men,
The world didn’t continue…
It stopped.
For them everything stopped;
And not just for two minutes…

  1. I cannot begin to comprehend what that generation went through, on the battlefield and the aftermath. A two minute reminder seems the least we can do to remember, and reflect x

  2. I heard excerpts from letter sent from some of those young soldiers on NPR this morning. Thanks for adding your words to this day.

    • Thank you, Candy. It was quite a day emotionally yesterday and I was moved to write a couple of pieces of which this was of the moment. Take care Grae:)
