In The Desert - Poem by Victoria Dame

In the desert you were there
While the bombs burst into the air
This mission was Desert Storm
And in this place you would transform
Your soul was left with a big tear

The sun shined on you with a glare
The sounds of the war it did scare
You with its loud destructive form
And this was always just the norm
In the desert

Your immortal soul it did spare
For God heard our pleading prayer
Operation Desert Storm
Sent back a man that was lukewarm
I want back my man that was there
In the desert
