“The Life That I have” Poem – Read at Clinton-Mezvinsky Wedding

Here is a re-print of the Leo Marks poem from poemhunter.com which was read at the Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky interfaith wedding today Saturday at a secluded Hudson Valley estate.

Leo Marks was an English cryptographer, screenwriter and playwright. He composed the poem “The Life That I Have” on Christmas Eve of 1943 in memory of his girlfriend Ruth, who had died in a plane crash in Canada.

 

The Life That I Have

The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours

The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours.

A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause
For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and yours.

Leo Marks

Veterans Day
By Taylor Weinman

Representing the red white and blue
The colors of our flag stand out proud and true.
The white stars on blue background with red and white stripes
Remind me of these veterans, who all risked their lives.
Just so the people of the U.S. could all live in peace and be free
These are the heroes that represent you and me.
They stood up strongly, untied as one,
And kept up the fighting until they were done.
And although some have fallen, and lost their lives in war,
We pray for each one of them.

And now that their souls live on forever more,
Above in God’s hands.
They watch over our nation,
And give us strength to triumph over others with strong anticipation.
So every year, when this day comes by,
Think of all the veterans that while fighting, had to die.
And remember that they were people
With fire and passion embedded inside.
They die for this country,
So remember and honor them with pride
