About the Poem

This is one I wrote for a very dear friend of mine who served in the Vietnam War. I wrote this from his point of view.

In Memory Of Falling Brothers

They fight....They die.
Do we really know why?
We've lost friends...brothers
Some even lost their lovers.
As I stand here at this wall
I think how we all stood tall.
How many didn't come back at all?
How I miss them all so dear.
As I stand here and read,
My eyes begin to tear,
To think it could be me
With my name upon this wall
I thank the Lord
Each and every day
For bringing me home safe
To the ones I love.
