Tribute to the Fallen Soldier

As I sat on the park bench reminiscing
I remembered your touch oh so gentle
The smell of your after shave oh so pleasant
The way you smiled that crooked smile
The twinkle in your eyes
The laughter in your voice

The darkness overtakes me
As I remember
The line of people shaking my hand
The way they carried your coffin that day
The rain drops covered my tears
The walk to the limo seemed endless

A little hand clutching mine
He looked so grown up
Face filed with pain
As we payed homage
To the man they called hero
He called Daddy

I walk home
Put on your old tee shirt
Climb into our bed
I lay there starring at your picture
Weeping in my pillow
As the baby you will never see moves in my belly

The war goes on
The soldiers families forgotten
Left in the shadows
How many more must die
How many families must we shatter
How many hero’s must we bury

    Beautiful , thoughtful work Angie. A tribute to life and a portrayel of unnecessary conflict! B

  • Thank you and yes I do agree it unnecessary it is a war over oil not over terrorism While I do not support the war I do 100 % support our troops and believe they are doing what they must do..
