Remembering Vietnam


Today I remember
someone I met;
Back in October
We were a sure bet.
But time would not allow
Us to become one
You see he was an Army fellow
I gave him a son.
The memories he gave me
I shall always treasure
It's just a matter of time
We will be together, I'm sure.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
