Remember Those who Died

You know there is a saying

That sunshine follows rain,

And sure enough you’ll realise

That joy will follow pain;

Let courage be your password

Make fortitude your guide,

And then instead of grousing

Remember those who died

By an unknown prisoner, written on the wall of his solitary cell. The poem was taken from the book, Prisoner of War: My Secret Journal, by Squadron Leader B. Arct. For more poems written by WWII prisoners of war at Stalag Luft I see this link
