A Poem - The Thame Youth Memorial by Simon Baynes

THE YOUTH MEMORIAL
(By Simon Baynes)

It is good to pause here to remember
the children of Thame who died young.
Let us think of the parents who miss them
may their innocence ever be sung
Spare a thought for their families grieving
and let us in sympathy pray

MAY YOU FIND THE STRENGTH TO FACE TOMORROW
IN THE LOVE THAT SURROUNDS YOU TODAY

(from ‘Gentle Market Town’, a collection of poems about Thame by Simon Baynes, published 2014)
