the good soldier

You cry burning tears
Over friends lost soul
He died in the battle
Not so long ago
Forever lost in the void
You so longed to close
Gather you courage
You must let him go

    Hello Reese, the death of our soldiers will never be forgotten. Every soldier that fall means stability of democracy. Welcome to the soupland. Ernilando

    It's hard to let go, Reese. Sometimes the "burning tears" can last forever. I see you are new to this site. Welcome to Poetry Soup! Best wishes, Carolyn
