“We’ll meet again, don’t know where, don’t know when”

“”We’ll Meet Again” is a 1939 song made famous by British singer Vera Lynn, with music written by Ross Parker and words by Hughie Charles.

The song is one of the most famous songs of the Second World War era, and resonated with soldiers going off to fight and their families and sweethearts.

The assertion that “we’ll meet again” is optimistic, as many soldiers did not survive to see their loved ones again. Indeed, the meeting place at some unspecified time in the future would have been seen by many who lost loved ones to be heaven.” – Wikipedia.
