Student Patriots at USA Patriotism!

Memories

Before he goes to sleep at night
Thoughts creep into his head
Of the time he spent in Germany
And the soldiers that he led.

His mind wanders back
To hearing gunshots in the night
And having hope that one day soon
Everything would be all right.

Though he tries not to think about it
He does anyway
About what happened to his best friend
On that one fateful day.

He woke up to the screaming
When the enemy invaded their camp
He remembers it like it was yesterday
The air was cold and damp.

When he heard the explosion
He ran outside to see what was wrong
The second he left his tent
He knew his best friend was gone.

Like a memory that plays over and over
Like a film inside his head
Tears start streaming down his face
Then drip onto the bed

He wonders what would have happened
If they hadn't been there
If they had been too scared to go
Or if they just didn't care.

Where would we be now?
What would have happened then?
Despite the horrors he witnessed
He knows he would do it all again.
