'There Are Times'

Posted on 12/15/2012 1:09:30 PM PST by P. J. Kaiser

There are times we will remember. There are times we will forget. There are times marked now forever. And, the times not marked as yet.

There are times we've had together, much of which not soon forgot. There are times of sweet surrender, bolstered with, 'forget me nots'.

Ill-witted whims from those thought clever echo through our nation's halls. Voiced by all who wish to sever the harkened notes of bugle calls.

Though the past is gone, now forever, it still whispers warnings behind our ears. A warning truth of down-pour stormings with brightened mornings to face our fears.

And, about the lives we hold so dear... it speaks of liberty. Freedom and its cost. And, the shame of not really knowing it until one knows what one has lost.

It tells of courage, if we will listen, by a bell's emitting mission. And, with its yell proclaims: “We are free!” To remind the world: "It tolls for thee.”

There is a time one's love is met. There are times of great regret. There are times that stand apart. Like the time that...breaks one's heart.
