WELCOME HOME, SOLDIER
The Words I've Never Heard

We've fought our country's battles,
In many a foreign land.
Too many times I've taken the lead,
And been the point man.
We've bravely met the enemy,
So I don't understand.

"Welcome Home, Soldier."
The Words I've Never Heard.

The vicious words of Hanoi Jane,
Forever burned within my brain.
"Baby Killer," shouted loud,
From the angry lips of a sullen crowd.
These I hear even as I sleep,
Voiced with hatred running deep
And yet,

"Welcome Home, Soldier."
The Words I've Never Heard.

Thirty years and more have flown,
As these cold streets I've walked alone.
You see me now, a broken man,
Walk in my shoes to understand.
For echoes in my mind, always,
The welcome received in those desolate days.
And even now,

"Welcome Home, Soldier."
The Words I've Never Heard.

Extract from my eBook, Poetry of "PASSION," an autobiography in verse

You bring back some troublesome memories, I can only say I'm sorry for what you never heard and I think it's a disgrace, so I'll say welcome home Frank Tymon and God bless you for what you have done for this country and its people!
