Each day the real Heroes, the wives and parents, wait for the return of their husbands, lovers, sons and daughters. Pray for them too.




She sits alone in her kitchen chair

The radio plays her favourite tune

Morning sun shines through her hair.

Hoping he’ll be home soon.


Almost a year since he went away

She waived and wept as he boarded the plane

She remembers well that sunny day

Deep inside she still feels the pain.


The t/v flickers with the latest news.

Visions and scenes from that awful place.

Commentators with puerile points of view

Flag draped boxes take up hanger space.


Outside the sound of closing car doors,

She turns and looks across the room

She’s too afraid to cross the floor.

She fears they come with a message of doom.


She sighs with relief the kids are here.

Her parents take them once a week

Their laughter fills her heart with cheer

As they run and play their hide and seek.


Each night she prays he will come home.

That when he does he has not changed

Unhurt by what he’s seen and done.

She knows that she’ll love him just the same.


Yellow ribbons flutter in the breeze

At every house that lines her street

Brightly decorating all the trees

They await the march of returning feet.

A very beautiful tribute to our fighting forces. There should never be any wars, there should never be any hate, there should never be any killing, or crime. I still believe that maybe one day, the world will all respect each other...maybe one day.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie,

HAILS, Poet!

"Waiting" flows on to the sea of emotions to make waves of art and
foam of beauty on the currents of humanity.

I enjoyed the reading of "Waiting".

Healthy Day, Poet!

A power packed write of bravery, and longsuffering mingled.
Enjoyable, though of a sad situation.

Very very nicely done with a lot of imagery. I have a poem with the same title but entirely different theme. Loved reading this.:-)shoma

I too pray for all. Great capture of this emotion as one waits for their loved one to come home and how certain images or sounds can create images of loss.
