I COULDN’T SEE

Charles J. Ingerson: I Couldn't See
Photo ©Copyright 2004 by Charles J. Ingerson
Looking into distance
trying to see the sun
someone put a fence
my sight now undone.

Standing on the shore
Iwo Jima or Normandy
there must be more
I couldn’t see suddenly.

Emotions once in check
filled the scope today
only within my respect
have I chosen to stay.

Wiping my eyes again
trying to see or recall
I couldn’t see or begin
to fathom sacrifices call.
