The following poem is a code-breaking poem from the life of Violette Szabo. She used it transmit messages when undercover in France during WW2. She was an agent for Allied forces in WW2 who after being caught, tortured and sexually assaulted, was executed at Ravensbruk Concentration Camp.

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.

 

Written by Leo Marks

 

 

“The Father will honor whoever serves me”

Gospel of John
