"life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the number of moments that take our breathe away"


I hold this precious piece
Of an everlasting memory,
As I remember, the last time
We saw each other,
And that very last memory.

Then take a long look,
At this beloved
Memory in my hands,
And stare so long,
As if I believed it was magical,
And could bring you back to me,
With a sigh,
I tuck it around,
My heart forever.

The author's comments:
This poem is about my cousin. He was a soldier fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq. He had come home and suprised me at school. He gave me a little flag and a pin that he was given as an award, before he returned back. A couple months later he was shot in the back. I wrote this poem when I found out what had happened to him. Luckily he survived and is now home safe. This poem is for those who have loved ones fighting in the war. My heart goes out to you
