He is the one

By 31st May 2011December 9th, 2019No Comments

He is the one who stopped the round, the bullet that took his life
He is the one who by dying today, broke the heart of his wife
He is the one who left a child, a son confused why does mummy cry
He is the one who left today, the one who was chosen today to die

He is the one who upset his parents, a mother who lost her son
He is the one whose father cried, appalled and angry at what has been done
He is the one who saddened a brother; he lost his very best friend
He is the one who moved on today, a new beginning not an end

He is the one in the news today; a soldier lost his life in action
He is the one who is soon forgot, at least till his repatriation
He is the one whose family will mourn; life will never be the same
He is the one who is no more, an angel heard and quickly came
