They Will Be Remembered

Regimental lines of white marble

Each with a story to tell

Here lie the remains of soldiers

Not far from where they fell

Some have names appended

Other are marked unknown

Many were just children

When in a moment their lives were gone

They all will be remembered 

For the courage that shone so true

In their every fighting moment

So that we as country might win through 


 © George L. Ellison



Always Remember

 

Always remember

that loved ones gone above

Will want to look down and see

You standing with love

So show a smiling face

Whenever you think of them gone 

Let them see you are okay

Then they can move on 
 


Don’t forget, re-call the good times together

Though it may bring tears in you

Make sure there’s a smile

They can see coming through!

 

For they will never want to see

You unhappy in strife

They’ll only ever want you to be

Smiling happily in life!

The Fragility of Earthly Life

 

Dear Father God help us to see
That life on Earth is not Heavenly
That only when we rise above
We will enjoy peaceful love

For this is Earth and Earth is known
To have tempestuous hurricanes blown
Typhoons that make us count the cost
Of seeing all our loved ones lost

Yes! Sadly this is not Heaven its Earth
Where life at times doesn't have much worth
Yet with love we can overcome to see
Heaven is there for you and meet

If we just accept, overcome and outgrow
All the heartaches that give us a blow
Of pain in the guts in the heart and soul
To let love keep our spirits whole

Love is the light that leads the way
So Lord please help us every day
To step over all the debris and pain
To walk in the light so that we will gain

The right to live in Heaven with You
Where the sea and skies are the only thing blue
Where joyful happiness does never cease
Because hearts are thriving on perfect peace

Where loved ones past and present can be
Forever together in harmony
Sharing caring growing with light
In Heaven where Earthly pain won't blight!

1914 Remembered 

  

One hundred years they have come and gone
Since those brave men volunteered to fight 
One hundred years they have come and gone

It’s quiet now on western front sites
Poppies grow where brave men gave their lives
Since those brave men volunteered to fight 

For king and country, children and wives
They battled in trenches with bullet scars
Poppies grow where brave men gave their lives

Twas to be the war to end all wars
To bring us all everlasting peace
They battled in trenches with bullet scars

Many died and they found Gods sweet relief
All fought bravely some the tale to tell
To bring us all everlasting peace

Decades have passed but still there’s belief
Many died and they found Gods sweet relief
One hundred years they have come and gone
One hundred years they have come and gone

Books Foreword

"We live in a world where a child dies every 6 seconds due to hunger and starvation.  That's over 5.5 million children 
that will die this year simply because they do not have enough to eat.  At Food Aid International, we are passionate 
about partnering with school, colleges, faith groups, businesses and individuals in funding and packaging 
malnutrition-fighting meals that are shipped to hungry children around the world.  

 For just $0.25, we can package and ship a meal that literally can save the life of a child.  

There is now significant need for food relief in the Philippines as a result of their recent devastating typhoon.  
Estimates show that over 11 million were impacted by the typhoon in the Philippines, with as many as 2 million in desperate need of food relief.  On behalf of Food Aid International,       I want to thank Pat Simpson and all of the poets that have contributed to this book with the purpose of raising funds to help feed the children of the Philippines.  Your investment through poetry is literally saving  the lives of starving children.  I also want to thank all of the readers who have purchased this book in order to impact the lives of the victims in the Philippines.   Together, both poets and readers are taking Hope to the Hungry!"
