My Thoughts

A Poem by Harry J. Schallom.




My thoughts are very numerous

And my trend of thought does stray

To things that happened currently

And to things of yesterday.


I think of going overseas

To help to win this war

And then I think of home Sweet home

My golf clubs and my car.


But, most of all I often think

Of those so dear to me

My Wife, my Mother, and my Dad

No more dear could they ever be.




*I am proud to share this poem, written by my Dad, 1st Sargent Harry J. Schallom, in about 1943. His official address in the military was 28th Air Depot Group, New York, NY. His post was Calcutta, India. Harry was born August 1, 1919, 100 years ago today. He was an optimistic, sharp, philosophical 97 year old, when he passed away in 2016.

My love is his always.
