Fallen Heros

A day so gray

Filled with



Falling on

My head

As I kneel

To pray

And give thanks

To you who

Served our


Is this what

You felt as

You lay there

In pain blood

Dripping from

Your soul

Tears falling

From your eyes

Was it gloomy

Like today

Is the weather

Reminding us

That our time

Can come

To an end

That today

Will never

Be ever more?

Terry Shepherd
