Contributor: M. Doris Fuller || Poem Categories

Fallen Hero country as flag
I saw your Mother on television today.
Her face was sad as her tears flowed.
I have never met you or heard your name,
But you're someone I wish I could know.

It seems hero's lives may be to short,
But your death will help others be free.
They say you died doing what you love
Because you love all Americans like me.

As I watch the bombs blast that desert city,
I know there are many young people like you
Who answered the call to the freedom fight
I shall pray they not be a fallen hero too.

Your Dad's face was unhappy and drawn,
As over your casket his body was draped.
In his hands he was clutching "Old Glory,"
While praying his sorrow he couldn't escape.

You gave everything you had to your country,
To your convictions you were forever true.
Fallen hero today you, America must honor,
A soldier killed defending the red, white, and blue.
