This is the tears of war. The fees we pay for freedom. It is battles' destiny that touches home in it's final tribute.
This is a repost. God bless America!!!

Ave Maria echoes from the rafters of the domed cathedral
It pierces the silence of doom that befriends the dead
Organs become mute to voices of angels here for burial
Where war returns the Patriot to his beloved unafraid
Colors of bravery cloak the pine as tears wash over his courage
Grief is alive while bravery is spoken instead
Mortals grieve for the Gods of Destiny
Festooned with wings now the sons of the Dead
Ava Maria the chorus of angels sing to the spirits
While hearts reach out for love that will never be fed .

The most beautiful things are taken from those who sacrifice the most, this is the way of the world and it's so sad. Pierre.

it's sad and scary when we think of what's "over there" in the Middle East it's about a loss (in the pine) but it's late good job

Highly emotional, the feeling of grief mixed with the patriotism and bravery of a killed soldier. Excllent. I wish I could hear Schubert's Ave Maria as I read it. It would have been a superlative experience. Victor

A big warm round of applause, a salute, and the tears of the knowing go out to you for this heartfelt and painful yet loving tribute to the the ones who give so much for so little in return.
Hugs and it is good to be back to reviewing you again.

{{{{{Tears}}}}} this was exceptionaly beautiful and emotionaly charged...You seem to know the very core of a heart..

Brilliant encapsulation, Susan. This kind of "facing up" starts for us in childhood, preparing us for the "great occasion" when we will need to be brave... whichever side of the pine box you ultimately find yourself on - inside or out. The conciseness with which you have penned this rich tapestry of valour and bereavement is breathtaking. TY K xx
