For 11:11:11 - One Rainy Day, Somme, 1916 by Bobby Stevenson



And I have laid thee down my love,
In a bed of silk and lace,
And a garland for your hair my love,
And a warm wind for your face,
And I would give you ships my love,
And stars to guide you by,
But will not watch you growing old,
And you will not watch me die.

  2. We have it easy because of what they did and gave Maggie. I hope you are smiling soon :-) Take care.
