Tears For Your Fallen

Just the thought of what
you went through
and the lasting memory
of the loss of your loved one,
who died serving
our great country
and fellow Americans
grips this parent's heart,
so very much that
words fail to capture
what truly yours must feel.

I see the little one
with those innocent bright eyes
and toothless happy grins
giving those adoring big hugs
out of pure, unconditional love...
even now as an adult.

Misty eyes, followed by the tears,
cannot be hidden,
knowing a parent's blind love
of their child can only be expressed
in memories past,
looking upwards Above in prayer,
sharing words with loved ones and friends,
and somber visits to the grave.

And while there will always be
that tremendous pride
in valiantly being there
for country, fellow citizens, and you...
nothing can ever replace
seeing your little one grown,
walking through the door
and giving you
a happy, loving smile
and a big ole hug.

Author's Note:
I wrote "Tears For Your Fallen" after hearing from a friend whose brave son was killed in action in Iraq, serving America and his fellow citizens bravely and proudly, as all our troops do . . . And since this poem, I have had the privilege of meeting others who have received folded Old Glory in solemn memory of their fallen loved one.  This poem and Honoring The Fallen are also meant for all who have lost a loved one defending our great country . . . Sadly, words can never properly convey the honor due these brave fallen.
