The Late Great John F Kennedy

Was shot on November 22, 1963

I was just 7 and a half months old

Too young to understand what everyone else was feeling

I know that my mother was working

She started off on her feet

But when the news was shared

She dropped to her knees

The tears streaming down her tired face

She wasn’t thinking

Stripped of thought

She went running

Home to us, her children

She held each one of us

One by one

Its been said that she was singing

A song that no one knew

It had not been heard before

She gathered us up and took us

She took us to the Boston Common

Where many others stood about

About in a daze

Everyone, singing, sobbing and soothing

All those that stood about

At some point everyone started to dispurse and

Return home or back to wherever they had come

But hours, days, weeks months and years went by

And no one ever understood why

Why anyone would want to harm such a good guy

John F Kennedy was such an honorable man

He was the best President we had ever had

How were people to go on without being able to understand

The Why or the how

Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested for JFK’s murder

Some still say that he wasn’t the one

People are still trying to figure out who really took the life of such a great man

If in fact it wasn’t Lee Harvey Oswald

No one has forgotten

No one could ever forget

One of the greatest men to have ever lived

His family still stands strong

Honoring his memory with all those both near and far

Take a moment to remember a man

Who gave his life for this great country of ours

He like many others fought a thankless fight

All so that we the people could live on with freedom and in peace

Our love is never ending for John F Kennedy
