Never take life too seriously. Nobody ever gets out alive.

All around me they soundlessly lie asleep
But one is delicately whispering
It whispers softer as I get closer
But I cannot find anything around me
They rose and fell in the heat of battle
But still one, only one stands to fight alone
I cannot find anything around me

He calls my name countlessly toward his grave
I run, run towards the sound forgetting,
Forgetting where I am, I see him living
He tells me not to worry he is free
He says he is where soldiers are at peace
As he leaves, tears roll down in my sadness
“Good bye”, I say, “I will see you in peace”

writing poetry started to help me cope with death of loved ones and this is just one piece of poetry I have written.

Great piece of poetry. You can tell there is

great depth of feeling in the way you write and the way you express yourself.

Your grandfather would be so proud of you.

I agree with both you and bluemagent22...poetry is my only escape.

And this poem was reminded me of a battlefield I once visited.
