EXTRACTION

Sound of rotors coming near
a good sound
yet causing fear.

You search the sky
for Huey bound -
Fighting for life
on battle ground.

How many times have you heard the sound?

Thirty some years later
you made it home
yet some how still feel alone.

You have bad dreams in the night
after all this time you still fight.
Waking hours helps the pain
of the dreams that cause the pain.

Sounds of rotors in the air
bring back memories from yester-year.
A sound
that still causes fear.
