A Smile in the Trenches Poem Verses

In the quietest of moments, we'll find a smile,
Remembering the times, that made life worthwhile,
For the soldier we've lost, the laughter we shared,
In the moments of joy, when you truly cared.

We'll share the tales, the jokes you'd make,
The memories of laughter, we'll fondly partake,
Through the tears and the sorrow, we'll find a way,
To cherish the humor, that once brightened our day.

A smile in the trenches, a memory so dear,
A tribute to the soldier, we once held near,
In the midst of our grief, let laughter ring,
For the joy you brought, forever will cling.
