Fallen, Never Forgotten

American flag

hangs mournfully

at half mast

 

Honoring a

courageous, fallen soldier

on a distant battlefield

 

Many come

to honor this

patriotic, young man

 

Supporting his loved ones

Family, wife, and children

 

Who will miss

his gentle soul

 

Let us

never forget

this day!

 

The ultimate sacrifice

paid by

one mighty soldier

 

So many others

may be free

 

U.S. Army Specialist Joseph P. Collette died on March 22, 2019 from enemy fire in Afghanistan while on a combat mission.  This poem is written to honor him along with all who have fallen.
