Three BrothersThree brothers played and fished and swam
and lived a simple life before;
Three brothers grew into fine young men
and then went off to War.

One was in the Army; one wore Navy Blue
the youngest was a Medic, who tried to save
the others on the battlefield
but, still, some went to their grave.

After the war was over
two brothers made it home
hugged their mom, and sis and dad
but each one felt alone………

The Army man had made it back
the Navy brother, too –
It was the Medic who was lost
little brother tried to do

the saving of each special life,
rather than the taking of –
and Someone’s mother has her son
because of the Medic’s love.
