Wheres My Child - Poem by Ronald Strickland

A child leaves his mothers side,
to fight a war to answer their counties call.
and his mother cry's.

Fathers standing proud waiting with honor
for his child's return,

Time passes when no longer a child,
from war they may return.

The child who left to fight a war
never return's.
