MY NAM VET

The road you’ve traveled brought you here
to where we live right now.
Alone, you’ve gone to hell and back
yet survived the trip somehow.
Scars have formed to hide your hurt
of days left long ago
but pain resides inside a heart
that doesn’t let it show.
Come forth my friend and tell me all,
your tale of hell and woe
Come let me show my love to you
and I will not let you go.
We’ll watch the rising sun each day
look forward to each morn,
I’ll hold your hand and keep your heart
till you feel safe and warm,
Come my friend, pour forth your tale
come tell your pain to me
I will always be beside you
for all eternity.
