How Many Heroes Now Have Gone Unsung

It’s said that only the good die young. So many souls with hearts of gold we’ve lost! How many heroes now have gone unsung? They’re taken with no mercy. At what cost? We cannot know the good they would have done. So many souls with hearts of gold we’ve lost! They lie in cold hard graves beneath our sun. If only they had been allowed to bloom. We cannot know the good they would have done. How swiftly do they sometimes meet their doom. And all their loved ones have to show is grief. If only they had been allowed to bloom! Each sprout not let to even grow one leaf! What utter waste! They had so much to give, and all their loved ones have to show is grief. Each sprout not let to even grow one leaf. It’s said that only the good die young. What utter waste; they had so much to give! How many heroes now have gone unsung? Written 5/27/2013

    I think it is horrible that the young must die for the older , wiser and richer governments.They have to follow orders even if it means death. love phyl

    When I think about it it makes me furious that our youngest have to die for the greed of the elder. Love, daver

    Hmm...Only the Lord has the power over life and death; I have seen many things come to pass that had been presented to me in secret, take for instance. ' that British icon ' sir James Saville; who did do a lot to raise funds for poorly children..but at the same time was a vile predator; maybe someone could have had a bad stroke at say 30yrs only God knows what is to transpire; A thought provoking write though Andrea congratulations on the win; best regards Joe..)
