11:11 11/11 – I saw this creation from Scott Black

Lest We Forget
I saw it in the morning and it stayed with me all through the day
I think because the song just fades out and doesn’t end leaves the understanding lingering, gives us the feeling that they are still out there in a bunker singing to save their innocence, it reminds us that no matter what we are doing in our lives those that have gone before have helped to shape our lives
we live a life of “Free choice”
a million men or more have given up their free choice for us to do this (They gave their lives or their peace of mind)
This piece shows us that it is in the face of youth that the heroes are etched not hollywood mega stars but normal blokes doing what they percieve is the right thing for their family and their way of life.

I have more than 6 ANZACs in my family and I am proud of each and every one of them!
My father was a soldier, my (ex)husband a tanky and my fiance a CFA Firey. They all chose to lay their lives on the line to help others be safe!
For all of them and for the thousands with no one to mourn them we will remember them!
Lest We Forget!

We’ll Meet Again – Vera Lynn

Let’s say goodbye with a smile dear,
Just for awhile dear, we must part
Don’t let this parting upset you,
I’ll not forget you, sweetheart,

We’ll meet again,
Don’t know where,don’t know when.
But I know we’ll meet again,
some sunny day.

Keep smiling through ,
Just like you always do,
Till the blue skies chase
those dark clouds, far away.

And I will just say hello,
To the folks that you know,
Tell them you won’t be long,
They’ll be happy to know
that as I saw you go
You were singing this song .

We’ll meet again,
don’t know where,don’t know when,
But I know we’ll meet again.
some sunny day

(choir)
We’ll meet again,
don’t know where, don’t know when
but I know we’ll meet again,
some sunny day
Keep smiling through ,
just like you always do,
till the blue skies chase
the dark clouds, far away.

And I will just say hello,
To the folks that you know,
Tell them you won’t be long,
They’ll be happy to know
that as I saw you go
You were singing this song.

We’ll we’ll meet again,
Don’t know where,
dont know when.
But I know well meet again,
some sunny day!

Julie Andrews Remembers

adgray is a writer and a poet
- telling stories all her life,
- writing them down once she learnt how
“Scribbling! Always scribling!”
… and no there was nothing to be done about it!
Her poetry came later when the gift found her to be a ZETE segue (Zographonic Extemporanious Treatise Ekphrasis)
At times she can go into a trance-like state as poetry flows through her to the page and screen
Thank you for coming to read my words! ~ adgray~
