Bobby Snyder III
dad, death, farewell, hero, sad, soldier, war,
He wrapped his arms around me
Never wanting to let go
I gently whispered in his ear
Daddy, when you coming home?
He said I'm off to battle today
To heal the wounded soldiers cries.
I don't know when or if I'll be back
The tears began to flood my eyes.
As father walked away
His smile, it did gleam.
His final words to me
Became but a nightmare within a dream.
The bomb rang out
Through the desert air.
When the dust did settle
They found father there.
The soldiers stood at attention
They saluted their brother goodbye,
And the eagle spread its wings
As a true American soldier, had died.

Patriot Guard funeral Escort
Loch David Crane
Today is sunny: with three dozen bikes,
some decorated cars, a pair of trikes,
two dozen Marines: all of the family
and toddlers to set their Daddy free
into the Great Beyond beyond the sky
where loved ones send their veterans who die.
Below our feet the stones give way to grass
where they are neatly trimmed; and as we pass
the names of strangers stare into the air
and we look back, wondering who lies there.
I won't step on a grave--I'll walk around
so not to insult those within the ground.
We ride at funerals honoring those vets,
brave men and women we have never met.
10th grade, 11th grade, 12th grade, 8th grade, 9th grade, courage, war,
My legion whom I doth love well
Our future battle might be hell.
Fierce hostile enemy our foe
We’ll not fill our hearts full of woe.
Let’s not stumble, falter or sigh.
When we hear the Scott’s battle cry.
Let’s uplift each other with grace.
Show we are here to win the race.
Whatever happens on this day,
You want your sons to always say,
My daddy died a hero’s death.
Insanely brave ‘til his last breath.
Now please know what you always knew.
Forever I’ll be proud of you.

Jab Meri Bechaini Mit Jayegi
Jab Mere Dilko Sukoon Mil Jayega
Yeh Khaalipan Mit Jayega
Do Pal Ki Chandni Ke Liye
Aj Bhi Zinda Hoon Main
Meri Khaamoshi Ke Ageh Aasmaan Bhi Khatam Ho Jayega
Kehne Ke Liye Toh Roz Marta Hoon Main
Thoda Aur Marne Ke Liye
Yeh Deewana Kal Phir Ayega

Sun and sand and beach
Life has some lessons for me
Be all you can be!
May healing come to you soon
And children be safe!
For all you have done
And wherever you may be
May you rest in peace!

bereavement, courage, death, freedom, hero, war,
Fifteen fabulous flapping flags for freedom flew
Fifty fine folks for freedom fought far
Flying fifteen fabulous flapping flags
Fifty fine folks facing freedom fearlessly fought.

autumn, death, farewell, hero, war,
rests in the still gnarled hand
bruised petals weep tears
weary eyes open
tiny cuts, the body bleeds
peace still years away
sun rise breaks the hill
heralds another battle
draw your sword and charge

Bike to Work day: escorting the funeral of Marine Albrak Omar
Loch David Crane
Patriot Guard Riders
No more classes now that I've been fired!
Patriotism is my job: I’m retired.
The Patriot Guard rides almost every day
to bring a flapping flag line on display.
We ride to work with combustion and chrome
to bring the bodies of our brave troops home.
In a strange twist for love of our country
This Arab Albrak was a volunteer
who gave America his youthful years
to make Iraqui people finally free.
He gave his life: I give my afternoon
remembering our heroes at high noon.
Packed in ice, he came home to his Mom;
his body was prepared by an Imam.

This poem has been removed for publishing on Amazon in WW II in Poetry: Veterans Stories in Poetry, including my late father's who was a Spitfire pilot in the Nigeria Squadron. As it says at the end, "For free speech".
bereavement, death, hero, mother, son, war, world war ii,
subtract us humans
but then comes along,
common sense approach
find him alive,
send this boy home
eulogy, hero, patriotic,
His passion to die for his nation
made death to flee in disarray
courage, death, destiny, hero, life, light, war,
Death is upon us,
the stars are falling,
smoke is rising,
but we shall rise,
united as we scream,
this declaration of war,
and a voice shall soon ask,
'Will you become the sacrifice,
to protect this world?'
Doubt shall fill hearts,
pain shall sound in the air,
blood will flood the earth,
and my answer shall be yes.

(about the two wars)
I gave my life for you,
My grit was your prosperity,
So that you could do.
I swallowed at the task,
Girded myself bravely,
Prepared to have a mask.
When self-awareness engulfed,
And loneliness overcame,
Determination was loved.
I fought a man every time,
I faced the thwarting enemy,
No easy game of mine.
I strove to either succeed,
Or to sacrifice my everything,
But the opposition to impede.
I thought of family and you,
Freedom and liberty,
And the rightness of the two.
america, courage, death, dedication, freedom, heartbreak, hero, memorial day, soldier, tribute, veterans day, war,
Upon the deadly battlefield
Where honor's won and death is sealed
Brave soldiers stand their ground
Where all that counts, can there be found
Disciplined soldiers, fearless men
Never again to rise and fight again;
They willingly gave their lives
Tis’ there blood’s megre sacrifice!
From the cries of fallen soldiers, bleedin’
Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!
courage, hero, racism,
At age of 26, Rohith Vemula
Died, cold murdered, homicide
Left his legacy of fight
Against atrocious tide
Of mislaid humanity
Death too wonders,
What killed him tender?
Injustice if condemned,
I too would have delayed
Avoided brazen condolences
Perpetrators of this heinous act
Unfazed by a scholars death
Like Vultures on corpse
Alas! they don’t realize
His thoughts will survive eternity
Transcending all forms of inequality
In the sea of inhumanity
Guiding light for many
"Rohith" a new star is born, for world to see
And salute its immortality
courage, death, devotion, grief, hero, pain, strength,
On the wings of a mighty power holding the weight of our nation as one
the eagle flies above and beyond the clouds while calling our hero's home
While watching from the highest tree she will sit so she can see from afar
a nest of destruction of worlds of war and gore that has left her heart with a scar
The fledgling of her wings are lost one by one as a soldier cries and dies
but she will continue her swooping and diving catching each soul in her wings
with her head held high a tear unseen to the heavens she will fly.

death, hero, humor, loss, poetry, sports, tribute,
The man was a legend.
So farewell, Cassius Clay, Ali
You knocked out a bit of poetry
That butterfly one sure packed a sting
And well done on the boxing thing
Mohammed, man, you’re counted out
You gave the boxing thing a shout
Wrote rhyme to make a grown man cry
And dodged the draft like a butterfly
Ali, you’ve packed your final punch
Man, you took boxing out to lunch
Men say that you are God today
Who made Mohammed out of Clay

cancer, courage, cry, death, emotions, goodbye, i miss you,
Time has passed and it has been six years
The day we lost you we were all in tears,
You my sister was a fighter
Never letting the disease grip you tighter,
For seven years you had determination
God took you to heaven without explanation,
So then we all realized you were our hero
To be in heaven and your pain is now zero.

eulogy, funeral, hero,
Hero of the Twentieth Century lies here
His dreams by his side lie
death, feelings, grandfather, hero, loss, love,
He was there
When no one else was,
And he held me when I cried.
He acted as the Robin Hood
That watched over my life.
He laughed with me when I was happy,
And made me laugh when I was sad.
He was the best thing that I ever had.
My grandfather, Mr.Robin Hood shall I say,
Was something very rare,
And now he's way up there,
Acting as the Robin Hood
Of my life.
america, blessing, death, dedication, deep, freedom, hero,
Small sorrows cover the forgotten land
sorrows that never reached the hearts of many people.
ones left to die with each soul, left to die without a word.
we know not their storys but their pain;
Each marked with differnet battles,
torn at differnet edges. They cannot be saved,
we will always try, but still will they fight.
We cannot take back their pains, but we can
remember the unremembered. These people
do have names, courage and freedom.

EPIC SIGHTING (Picture 1).
Castle on a crag,
Climbing there a total drag,
Snowy wintry blasts,
Heroes bred to last,
Tales of battles long,
Entranced the throng,
Gathered around their kings,
Enemies circling in rings,
Dark impending skies,
Queen's lovelorn sighs,
Epic sightings brave,
Maidens aloft did wave,
Foe retreat now to caves,
Valiant warriors to their graves,
Their women, alone, age,
From Gothic history, a page,
Saga written by this mage,
Time's backward glance to flag,
A glimpse of a castle on a crag.
freedom, people, sympathy, hero,
in a story heroes always win
have you ever wondered if they had a sin
before the hero he was a man
being heroic was not his plan
in the right place at the right time
a man struck down in his prime
to serve for others not himself
to be poor instead of in wealth
the hero wins but at a price
to find out then roll the dice
and his fate will be revealed
yet its not his power to wield
for all heroes have a role
complete the task, or lose your soul
addiction, anxiety, boyfriend, death, heart, missing, moving on,
Forcing me to linger on
I hated every breath
Like knives forced down my throat
What had I left to live for?
Rejected by my parents
Called a freak by my friends
What motivation is that?
But then I met you
You saved me from death
You made me want to live
You were a silent hero
But you will never know:
I do not only love you
I an forever in your debt
For saving me from myself
art, death, eulogy, hero, inspiration, music,
something strange to earth was sent
dropped some art then simply went
now lonely spiders left on mars
watch red shoes dance on dusty stars
and walls of televisions sing
sweet things about the rebel king
the lad insane, the skinny duke
androgynous inspired fluke
flight of peacock, coloured flash
funkin’ funky ash to ash
china diamond, cold as god
genuinely, truly odd
