Soldier Boy




I know they called

You have a job to do

I have to step aside

Remember my love for you


I look through the glass

With rain and tear drops mixed

I watch for the man to walk

I keep my face so fixed


You see I received a letter

Telling me there was news

I couldn’t help feel the flutter

In my heart as it turned blue


No more smiles on my face

As he read the letter out loud

The news of you missing

From deep within the crowd


I will forever cling to hope

Watching out the door

Although others try to remind me

That you are for never more.

    • That was an excellent movie. I realize it is a sad poem, but sometimes I write what isn’t happy and life is so real; it includes all emotions. Hugs my friend


      • But you know what, like lyrics in songs, most of all poetry is sad or somewhat depressing . . . imagine how boring it would be if every single lyric or line is happy happy happy. It’s just not the world. Hugs!!
