Some Still Survive

Marsha Burks Megehee

 

Some still survive, can you hear
Soldiers of sorrow from yesteryear?
Pleading, begging, asking why
They can't be free...before they die?
 Hug a mother just once more?
Breathe last where Freedom's Eagle soars?
See their children middle-aged
From years within a bamboo cage?
Grandchildren too-whose age must be
In letters past... "Dear brave daddy ...I'm three!"
A steamy jungle, double crossed
Left in limbo of the lost.
Homecoming games played with fire
Heroes names marked out by  liars.
A coverup... dark lies ... Viet Cong!
 Bring them home..where they belong!
 Forgotten heroes.... still alive!
Spread God's truth...
 
SOME STILL SURVIVE!
