GHOSTLY VOICES WHISPER…

‘Rest in peace…’
the veteran pleaded
to his lost brothers in arms
… feeling guilty
because of death
cheated
Sometimes
his answer
goes unheeded
… is not heard
through the alcohol’s
musing haze
“We are at rest…
brother… Never fear…
We know that you were there
when you were needed
and we will rest even easier yet…
when we know in reaching peace
you have succeeded.”
