Braveheart

She does not wear black
As red roses fill the earth
With only her love
Wrapped in a flag

Rifles up, shots in the air
In honour of truth
And sacrifice
Of her Braveheart

The band plays a tribute
Her ring remembers
The day she made her home,
Her country, her family

Wife to a soldier
Wearing pride on her shoulders
He still lives on
She does not wear black

Mindfills for Free Verse Revolution, a Literary and Arts Magazine. Issue VI LiJi encourages contributors to tell tales of courage and innocence, of temptation and sacrifice, and of power within and without.
