Karen Gogol


Where are you now my hero friend:
I long to feel your touch.
We walked the path together
till life became too much.

The war was started long ago
somewhere round the world away
Yet the fighting lingered on in you
thru your each and every day.

Dreams awakened you at night
till you learned that you are home.
Waiting for the comfort feel
to settle in your bones

Let me hold you close to me
help you heal your hurt
Let me feel your beating heart
till your time to leave this earth.

Then I’ll keep you close in memories
way back to when we met.
Forever in my heart and soul
my hero, Vietnam Vet.
