A beautiful,
Arresting face
Staring out
From eternity,
Always so proud
And, seemingly,
Fearless.
For four years now
You've caught me 
Unawares,
Showing up 
At odd moments,
Breaking my woman's heart,
Again and again,
That one so young,
Strong, and selfless,
Met such a murky end
In that far off land.
In my mind
You have become
The poster child
For all who have given
The ultimate sacrifice
In this war
Where the enemy
Practices illusion
Both there and here.
You would not
Have looked at me twice,
But your face is haunting
To me, and
To all those 
Who look upon it.
You've earned your sleep.
Now rest in peace
Soldier.

That Marine was brough down by "friendly" fire, the authorities should had the courage to say so and move forward, not trying to embellish with false details that doesn't give honor to our brother Marine.

Semper Fi

A beautiful tribute to a "soldier" we have gotten to know through this tragedy. May he rest in peace.
