BROTHERS MINE

Troop F, 8th Cavalry (BlueGhost) Vietnam
For Bob Drury ~ BlueGhost Two-Zero
Troop F, 8th Cavalry (BlueGhost) Vietnam
May ‘69 – December ‘70
Brothers, brothers, where’d you go?
Off to heaven and left me below
Full of sorrow unexpressed,
Alone and grieving, so bereft.
Though I often feel you near
I wish so much you were really here.
I miss the comradeship we shared,
The crazy things we sometimes dared.
There’s a yearning in my soul
Where you once made it whole…
And some guilt that I still live
While you gave all there is to give.
But, surely as the sun brings dawn,
While I breathe, your memory lives on.
Search the world; you’ll never find
A truer memorial than my mind.
