The Unwanted Letter - Poem by Billy Loving

Radiant beautiful face
Memory, my mind can't erase
Pale blue smiling eyes
Tears trailing down as she cries

A knock at the door
To loud to ignore
Solemn, well dressed soldier peering through
No doubt of what he is about to do

Trembling hand turns the knob
Overwhelming grief as she begins to sob
Taking the letter with trepidation
Fear, an overwhelming sensation

Letter of death
Rapidly, the breath
Contents confirming her fear
The loss of one she holds so dear
