Tribute to Veterans: Carry On


Editor’s note: The following poem was written by Declan Meade, a student at the Galvin Middle School and the grandson of Michael F. Coyle, a longtime poetry contributor.

Carry On

Carry on, Carry on,

You will be at peace when you are done.

Carry on for those who couldn’t,

End the trail for those who shouldn’t

Beaten up, torn apart,

But they can’t take away your heart

Carry on for your fallen brothers

Don’t look back and find some cover.

Explosions booming, bullets flying,

Men who were shot are lying down crying

You radio for help, time after time

Command won’t stop to answer the line

As you get up to keep on running

You feel a searing pain that is very stunning

You lay down bloody, beaten and tired, thinking you are done.

But over the silence on the radio you hear, come home boys … you won.
