SPEAK TO ME

IWVPA Double Tap Award for War Poetry: October 27, 2004
Awarded: October 27, 2004
If you do not say
I can never know
of the things
that hurt you so

Speak to me… Let me know…

Roust memories in their dens
Tell me of wars` episodes
for shared burdens
make for lighter loads

Speak to me… Let me know…

Let me weep with you
at the horror you did see
And perhaps then it will be
that you can smile with me

Speak to me… I need to know…
