SPC – US Army
Died: September 25, 2004
Operation Iraqi Freedom
The tragedy of senseless War
Was brought back Home two-fold
Showing the pain inside a Heart
Sometimes, impossible to hold.

A family learned of the Death
Of a loved one, Son and Brother
And the news, just strengthened Bonds
Between this Son and His Mother.

She had said, “War takes Soldiers,
and those Soldiers come from Families.”
But, Her Death only compounds
Those awful Wartime tragedies.

It’s said, “She died from a broken Heart.”
But, just wonder if she knew
That Robbie needed Her Up There
And did, what a Mother would do?

In either case, they are together
And she knows, they understand
And though in pain, the Family knows
They are walking Up There, hand in hand.
