Bravehearts

Bravehearts

Pinned for
Eternity
In sepia pages
Of a decorated album
They live

Held for
Countless ages
In the warmest corner
Of an old parent’s feeble heart
They breathe

Etched for
A whole lifetime
In the fond memories
Of a bereaved partner’s dried tears
They grieve

Served for
Posterity
In the heroic tales
Of a nation’s history
They shine

Martyrs
Are bravehearts
Who sacrifice their dreams
For love of the motherland, they
Inspire
