 A Vet


The phone rings

It’s a familiar number

My hope sings.


Again, I say to myself

Is this the one,

Has this day finally come?


Many calls before

They check in

Wondering, how I’ve been.


They have a question

A DNA request

Sometimes, a suggestion.


The Vietnam Wall

Your name etched in stone

A soldier known.


Hope, tomorrow

Another call comes

Hope, it’s the one...


They found you

My brother - A Vet

Missing In Action

Not home, yet!
