Brendan Harper

The last time I heard your voice
Was when you were on the S.S. Charlotte
You said I was ornery
For breaking your computer
I haven't heard from you since
No letters, e-mails, or phone calls
I'm worried sick
But I shouldn't be
Because you're worried about me
And my well-being
That's why you left for the Navy
To protect all of US 
Literally the United States
And I am grateful
Godspeed to you, cousin
We're with you all the way

    I know the feelings of a son going into the force but not in war times. It must be hard on the family when they don't hear. Keep writing. Sara

    I know the feeling of no letters, e-mails, and phone calls. It's devastating to know they are in danger and you don't know anything of them...Raul
