The Unspoken Hero

Living all alone

Longing for someone

to talk about coming home

Battlefields and Battlegrounds

Are in the back of his mind

Echoes of Gunfire

is all now a big sound

Refuge in the Wilderness

with balls of fire all around

I will not utter a word

Until the Troops find the grounds

An Unspoken Hero

Telling you the truth

Longing to come back home

with a Military Salute
