Into Harm's Way

Into Harm's Way

The long ago
memories persist
stories of war
back then
reenter today..
for a few
their immersion
brought glimpses
of more..
but stories persist..

Those life endings
ordered and angered..
new remembering
brings fresh pain..
a rejection decided
brought a lifetime
burden of guilt..
a lost limb then
anchored renewal
for others today..

We need ask
on this
day of memories
that all suffering
long and brief
heavy and light
be Sighted anew
accepted at last
sharp edges of
 welcome Light...

Thanks to 
West Point 
Class of 1967
for your
service and suffering..
Into Harm's Way
