THE HERO, by Claude Peter Dhuet

THE HERO
Claude Peter Dhuet

The angel hovered just above-
The lifeless form below-
A life that started with a cry-
Not many years ago.

Come now my son, you must arise-
Your work here now is ended-
You have fought for right and freedom-
Your country you have defended.

We go now to a better place-
Where peace and love abide-
And join your comrades who will greet you-
In your heavenly home on high.

All those you love, and those who love you-
In their hearts you will forever be-
The one who gave his very all-
That the living may be free.

By-

War could be an unnecessary thing if only we were just a little more civilized. It involves not only the ones who participate, but so many others who grieve for a lifetime for the lost ones. Will we ever learn to get along?
