To A Soldier - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

farewell my love
my tear flows like rain
i know what is a war
it means killing
both innocent and criminals
and it's good that i
know you are the former
and guarding peace
i am proud to have you
even for a little while
fighter for peace, justice
you will last
a whole lifetime
as long as god allows
this breath to flow
you afford a better world
and -me

    Beautiful, austere grief that cannot spare a tear. This is a world class farewell.
