Fallen Hero

by xXx Expecting xXx   Sep 28, 2007

Fallen heroes across the land
Brace hearts held in their hand
Lie in bed late at night
a phoen call comes that causes fright
"It's time you come, we need you round."
he drops the phone anc falls to the ground.
tears stream down his young face
as he packs to leave this place
so young and sweet, innocent and pure,
ready to fight as he leaves for war.
he heads to the room of his little girl
knowing that she's his entire world.
kisses her forehead and walks away
goes to the couch where his life lay
he wakes her up to say goodbye,
"Take care of Sapphire if I die."
he turns to leave and walks out the door
as he watches his wife fall to the floor.
Two weeks later, she watches the screen
searching for his name, it is finally seen
under fallen soldiers that have faced their fate
he was named a hero, as he walks inside heavens gate.

    Aww man this sucks. It always does when you lose a hero. I hate watching the news seeing another person in Iraq die. Yep but ya know that's something we all have to deal with. Well written poem.
