Poems by Vincent Silva

Among his many passions – family, country, education and reading (until he lost his eye sight) – Vincent wrote poetry. We have selected a few of the many poems he has written through the years to include in his book.

Our Last Goodbye” was written in memory of Vince’s youngest son Rick.

The Defenders of Bataan” relates the discussion between the devil and St. Peter regarding the soldiers of Bataan and how nothing could crush their spirit.

Why Do I Weep” gives us a mere glimpse of the anguish and helplessness Vince endured seeing so many of his comrades perish on the Death March and in the prisoner of war camps.
