Vera Brittain served on the Western front as a V.A.D (Voluntary Auxiliary Detachment) Nurse.

Perhaps (to R A L) by Vera Brittain

Perhaps some day the sun will shine again,

And I shall see that still the skies are blue,

And feel once more I do not live in vain,

Although bereft of You.

Perhaps the golden meadows at my feet

Will make the sunny hours of spring seem gay,

And I shall find the white May-blossoms sweet,

Though You have passed away.

Perhaps the summer woods will shimmer bright,

And crimson roses once again be fair,

And autumn harvest fields a rich delight,

Although You are not there.

But though kind Time may many joys renew,

There is one greatest joy I shall not know
Again, because my heart for loss of You
Was broken, long ago.
