They Were So YoungThey are so young,
and act so tough.
My son is just one of them.
He's a US Marine.
I grow more fearful every day,
I just want to say.
The news can''t report what they go through.
They themselves can't even say.
They lock down all communique.
I wait and wait impatiently,
"Please don't let it be him."
I really don't want it to be any of them.
I want to know what happened,
But I know full well, it won't be opened.
As long as I don't give a clue,
they won't give a care, but I do.
They were all so very young.
Please be careful, my Son.
I now know it wasn't you.
