 Dear Colonel....

 

You’re always there

I’m so grateful...

Thank you.

 

My brother would say

Thank you....

For holding my hand.

 

Today, his medals came

He would be so proud

So proud to wear them.

 

It’s been forty-four years

Every reminder cuts deep

Just like it did on this day.

 

Hope remains strong

There will be a day

That day will come along.

 

Dear Colonel...

Thank you, thank you

For holding my hand.

 

Semper Fidelis...

Proud is what you and your Brother should be. I was in the Navy in the 50's so I know what the medal means. As always my Dear Friend your poetry is outstanding no matter what the subject may be. GOD BLESS YOU and Your Loved Ones.
Your Loving Friend
