Something to Remember

A Poem by Annabelle Lee

For My Papa

People have no idea
What it's like
They didn't go through It with us
But Dad, I know,
That every inch of the pain we felt
Was tenfold for you

I can't imagine
What It was like
I understood
You had to leave
But I was what, four?
I didn't yet understand why

I couldn't see just how much
A bit of land
Or a minor disagreement
Could ever have made such a change
Could be such a big deal

But I guess you did, 
Must have meant something to you
And for that reason, 
And that reason only
It means something to me

I won't pretend I understand
Cause Dad, I barely know
But I will be one person
To let you know you didn't go through it alone

Dad I'm proud, 
Of you
Not just for what you did for our country
But what you went through
When you got home
What you went through
So you could keep us

And I know I'll drive you crazy
And Dad, you're sure to return the favor
But Papa, I love you
And that's something to remember
