I felt your touch; I knew it well;
You woke me every night-
You claimed my mind; Reached in
my phyche-
gave my darkness light

You knew I'd listen; That's why you're here;
Oh why can't I see your face?
You speak clearly and with honor,
"Help me reserve my place"

My voice ain't strong; I'm but one;
no one will hear my song-
"Don't leave me here, don't leave me here"
" I've been here way too long."

Streaming cries from those that died;
continue their journey home-
Forget the struggles; Forget the pain;
but don't forget that I still roam

Give me peace; Oh give me peace;
alas my soul needs rest-
Help me find my way through time-
and out of this tangled mess

You know my name now give it sound;
hear deeply what I say-
There's others here; Just like me;
All were MIA

Lisa Hilbers



The remains of more than 800 Americans missing from the Vietnam War have been identified, while about 1,800 service members are still unaccounted for, according to the Defense Department.

That's a lot of families still waiting, praying and hoping! Thank you for this powerful write, Lisa and for the reminder that we must never stop the search until each soldier is accounted for.
Take care,

Bravo and well done! You have given that voice to the MIA's not only of the VIetnam war but all the past and future wars to come. Your heart and dedication to these soldiers who gave their all is commendable and the reader knows it is a part of your very soul.

Yes Lisa, we must not forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country and the freedom and liberation of other countries from tyrannical power and despotism.
We may never recover their bodies, to give them a decent , Christian burial, but their undying sacrifice and memory lives on in the hearts and souls of those, who have profited by their heroic deeds, and have been made more secure and safe, as a result of their glorious actions
This is a truly poignant and moving piece
Thanks for this timeous reminder Lisa
