"FORGET-ME-NOT"


To my Dear Little "Chicks,"

A Soldier's Verse Letter to his children.

My dear little Chicks I'm thinking of YOU,

And dear Mother throughout the long day ;

And wonder at times how you're getting on,

While your Daddy's so far away.


Now, be good children, and don't worry Mummy,

Then when I come home again on "leave;"

My "Kit Bag" I'll fill with Toys and Good Things,

Like Santa Claus on Christmas Eve.


Now, tell dear Mummy, I'd like to have,

A photo of you all – as you are ;

Just to cheer me up while "doing my bit."

Though the distance between us is far.


I dreamt last night I was home again, 

With you and Mother so dear ;

But at early dawn the Buglers blew

"Reveille" in tones loud and clear.


FORGET-ME-NOT, my thoughts are of YOU,

While marching or from drill set free ;

My loving thoughts for ever turn,

To Home — and Dear Ones — far from me.


From......................................................    "LONGING FOR YOU."
