Losing a Soldier

Deep Woods 011

When one our own is lost,

killed in action,

the pain sinks deeply into our core

pulling our sense of community,

together into the sadness of love.

Our hearts instantly reach out,

to the families, even an atheist,

says a prayer, because there is too much

pain. Part of love is grieving,

so we become even more human

wearing the same uniform.

May they rest in peace.


Note: Please pray, or think some positive thoughts, for all those that have lost their soldiers, both men and women. Also pray for those that do protect us, so we can sleep peacefully at night.

    1. John thank you for your wonderful comments. I have not lost anyone personally but I continue to meet people that tell me the sad stories of their loved ones killed in action, so I wrote it with them in mind. Peace.

  1. Lest we forget, wars kill people, bring all the soldiers back home; stop all wars, the only people that benefit from wars are bankers, politicians and the militray industry.
