 A Watermark

 

Sixteen, the letter first came

A watermark of heartache

Visible against that day.

 

Nineteen, he had just begun

They’re still searching

For my parents only son.

 

Forty-four years now gone

Barely visible in the light

A Watermark pressed on.

Oh such sadness and heartache etched in this poignant memo
I can feel your pain and anguish
