My Dad My Soldier My Hero - Poem by Emily Clark
as you lay your weary body down, our hearts are heavy, your a million miles away, that one phone call a week lifts our spirits, but to hear your tired voice and not hold you, to feel your love shut of, you cant see it but you feel it deep within, i love you, you are my hero, days and nights i never stop thinking of you, you are my father my hero, yet the army took you, love could never have saved you, you were lost in your mind, lost in your own terror and nightmares.
The harden men weep for once was a life, their arch made with their guns... i walk through they are all a blur, you tore my heart out and deserted your family, the guns fire one after another 21 in total, and old lady wimpers, she never knew you like i did dad, i knew your faults knew your dreams shared your love of literiture, the casket slide down into the earth, how could you leave? just because i was 17 didnt mean i didnt need you, you were our partner in crime, the one that made us feel safe, the white rose slips from my hand, as they fill in the hole, my heart is burried deep with you, how can a man loved by so many, commit suicide? how can a man just not think, a daughters love never saved him, guess it was never enough i still feel you around, your in all of us kids from phils smile to damos walk, to my chin i love you, my hero
