    Vietnam Tears

    I stood and I watched as a mother cried,
    when she had heard that her son had died.
    He didn't die because he was sick,
    or he didn't die because he was in a wreck.
    He died doing what he felt was right.

    I watched a father try to hold back his tears,
    His son had lived only a scant 19 years.
    His son had died nine thousand miles away,
    And what was there left for a father to say?
    He got down on his knees and said a prayer,
    His brave son knows his father did care.

    I stood and watched as a little girl cried.
    She didn't understand why her brother had passed on;
    Why he never again played with her on the lawn.
    Looking at the little girl's tears I knew,
    That her big brother died fighting for you and me.

    Forty-seven years and still putting flowers on my friends grave. And every year I walk away with a very heavy heart.
