Distance fades on the setting horizon.
The shore is now a dream
I will never forget
The way you loved me
I will never forget
What you said to me.
I will stay strong if you do
Tell my smiling faces I said to be brave
I won’t say goodbye. I’ll be back soon.
So don’t worry about missing me.
I will never stop missing you
They say love lights the way.
I have not yet found that light
Perhaps it is all for the better.
Now that I am in this new place
I can make a difference for the forgotten
For the ones like me
I can’t say I don’t have much better
But I can surely say I’ll never do better
So when I look down on those eyes
I will recognize the darkness
I will feel the fear
And maybe we will help each other.
These bloody tears & dirty boots
Will walk the trails of the dead
I have seen the unseen
I have heard the unheard of.
Lying would say I am fearless
But I am stronger nonetheless
Muddy waters and dusty plains
Are nothing compared to this
The blank stare in their eyes
And the tattered mudfilled boots.
I’m silent and patient
As I scream on the inside
The chaos around me has just begun
And that is what scares me the most.
I’m Screaming for help
Can anyone hear me?
I hear no sound
The bombs fade
partners pass by
It is all such a blur
It’s not getting much clearer
Darkness Is surrounding me
I never got to say goodbye
I never got to tell her not to cry.
I’m sorry that I have to leave so soon
I’m more scared now than ever
And I know its getting near
So bury me with honor
I died for you.
I died for you.
oh boy.

I use a quote from Goethe in my lit class:
Men suffocate in silence
While a god gave me a voice
To weep in jubilation.

I think you have that voice. This poem really speaks volumes.
