A Brief, Encouraging Note

It surely was a hard time
For you to have to say 'goodbye'!
Did she really care about your plans,
Your talks, your efforts, your dreams?
Tell us what happened, honey, and why?
Try and overcome it by all means.
Keep your faith, live your days wisely,
Face your plight,
And things will certainly end up
Getting right!

I just heard this wonderful poem read by Charles Durning. It's part of a documentary about Normandy Beach and the invasion aftermath. Beautifully done.
