  • In just a blink of an eye
    He goes from farmer to soldier.
    Alive one day,
    dead the next.
    How is this fair? It's hasn’t even been a month
    Already listed on the chart of the deceased.
    Friendships are torn as they all fall down like dominoes.
    Families hearts blasted into pieces,
    It is pure torture, just like cows getting sent to slaughter,
    Biscuits, bread, and bully beef.
    It's all you get to eat.
    This war is flickering my brain.
    Thinking about all the lives that have been lost.
    Losing your father, son, husband , relative , and best friend is a pain
    that you can't describe.
    But, this is life, you never know their next move.
    It can happen in just a blink of an eye
    love your great great niece lucia
    thinking of you in our hearts 💕

  • Ivanhoe - you made the ultimate sacrifice by laying down your life on that fateful day in August 1915. Your contribution and determination at such a young age to preserve and protect the freedom for which we all enjoy today a hundred years later has not been forgotten. Your family have never forgotten about you and your name has been mentioned often over the years. RIP at your place in Chunuk Bair, Turkey. Kia Kaha x
