Letter Home

Hi dad-hi mom
just taking a moment to say
the bombing has become quiet
it is hot over here today
l am so afraid mom
please don't tell dad
the nights of all the silence
and the fear that l have
l was wrong and you were right
wishing l was home
l am just one man in a unit of many
all young soldiers just like me
we do what we can with what is at hand
the whispers here are all the same
everyone is writing a letter
l miss you mom and tell dad too
as a man l am better
WE are informing you to say
but he was killed in action today
a letter he wrote is being brought
unopened addressed as home
know just how bravely he had fought
a good soldier as l have ever known
