The author of this poem was an ordinary woman, whose husband had been posted into the army.
He went to the battlefields of Vietnam when their daughter was four years old. And from then on, she and her daughter only had each other.
Her husband was sadly killed in the battlefield, leaving the woman a widow – until she died of old age.
When her daughter was organising her remains, she discovered this wonderful poem her mother had written titled ‘But you didn’t’ .
