Remembering Uncle Ernest

With deep gratitude to all the men and women who have endured war that we might have peace.  #LestWeForget, #CanadaRemembers, #RemembranceDay, #ArmisticeDay, #VeteransDay

If Uncle Ernie had not gone off to war before I was four
If he had not loved movies, or sat in that seat in that theatre when on leave
Where the bomb came through the room and through the floor and killed a few and then blew up and killed some more
He'd have been here handsome and bright helping my father with the rancher's load and telling stories to my delight 
Marrying and making me cousins in the night
