Veteran’s Lament

Man, Warrior, Portrait, Soldier, Army, Knight, Hero

Do you remember me –

The idealistic and excited lad, from back when we began?

Adventure awaited, and the world stood before us

How far have we come?

Have our scars altered us?

Have the experiences of a lifetime left us changed?

Green pastures now seem but empty fields

Lush woodlands places of lurking danger

Do you remember me –

The innocent of days gone by?

Please remember that me

For he is forgotten by I


Padre
