Autumn Leaves - A poem by J.T. Murphy

December of 2009 Canada lost six soldiers on the 24th & 30th Lt. Andrew Nuttall, Sgt George Miok, Cpl Zachery McCormack, Sgt. Kirk Taylor and Pte. Garret Chidley This was one of the worse weeks for losses since Canada began it’s mission in 2001. My mother who frequently writes poetry at the time put together these words and wanted to share them on my blog.

We watch them fall

Like autumn leaves

Silent upon the ground

Beneath the flag

Strong, flying in the breeze

Our hearts cry out

With Pain for those left behind

With Praise for those who serve

With Prayers for Hope and Peace

- J.T Murphy
