Where Have You Gone My Child?

Where have you gone my child?

Now I must weep for thee

Upon the heart there bares a wound

Much deeper than the sea.

I saw you as you walked away

Across the meadow green

It seems like only yesterday

A lad just turned eighteen.

With rucksack on your back, you left

You turned to say good~bye

A wave of a hand, then you were gone

As tears slipped from my eyes.

A war to fight on distant shores

so brave of you to go

But word came that you had fallen

And that is all they knew.

Am single sheet of white paper

A purple heart to come

This is all they sent to me

What happen to my son?

Misty rain is falling now

A flag is folded

As distant guns salute your death

My heart sinks in dispair.

Where have you gone my child?

Now I must weep for thee

Inside my soul there is a wound

Much deeper than the sea...

 

 

This is to my Aunt Mary who lost her son in this war.. I hope she makes it..Cuz it has to be hard to lose a child.. I love you and I am here for you.
