A D-Day Tale

The beaches of Normandy WWII
A soldier brave and true
Rising to fight a horrible man
Saving the lives of all those he can
A beautiful woman he sees
Stolen from Poland to scrub floors on her knees
With tattooed numbers on her arm
The soldier rescues her from harm
Not a word in their language the same
Yet they are wed, and to America they came
Three children they bore, two female and a male
Very real this story is - a love story true to the tale
More than 50 years have passed and their love held fast
Until one month apart they passed
Fond memories we hold deep
Of my Grandparents whose story is now yours to keep
