POW… MIA

We seek you…
alive or dead
… it is true
Whether your graves
be in jungle lands
or beneath the sands
… wherever you are
and if you still dwell
… existing in a cell
… behind barbwire fences
… hidden from the light
in this long… long night
… we still search
and find you we will
for we have not forgotten
You are our soldiers still…
