FOOTSTEPS GROWING FAINT

Charles J. Ingerson: Footsteps Growing Faint

The distance increasing always
never seeming to get closer by
as clouds drifting in miles of sky
gone are too many yesterdays;

Soldiers treading the war zone
now resting in the graveyards
some in sleep others by shards
each their lives heroes known;

Footsteps growing faint in sound
where bands played marches oft
now heard taps and tattoo soft
a drum’s cadence now profound!
