The dirt under my feet, soft and sound,
The air that I breath, clean and refreshing,
This scene that I see, chaos and pain.

A calm night in the war, he was my best friend,
The shots rang out random, we were not prepared,
Shooting back quickly, we took cover in the hut,
But he was not there.

Back out I ran, screaming his name,
I heard his voice and ran to him,
He handed me a note, a goodbye to lost love,
His eyes went blank, a good friend gone.

I ran blindly into the night, shooting with my rage,
I heard my name yelled, never looking back,
Took them down myself, the pain overbearing,
That note handed to his mother myself, that is a fact.

Poem Written By: Anthony S Guerra.
