DEAR SOLDIER, SIR…
Have thou shed a tear from your wars?
Have thou found comfort for your pain?
What direction have thou chosen to walk?
Which road have thou entered since Nam’s end?
One can only imagine the grief that is carried deep
I do not know if one would really know its depth
Unless they are of you, the soldier, your brothers
Those of us who did not physically fight with you
May never understand those tears and painful memories
Please try to know some of us want to know anyway
Always praying for patience and empathy too
No matter the cost, no matter the pain, no matter the grief
Some of us will continue to provide comfort
And shed many tears with you and without you
