I could hear the weeping willows bellowing


The look of terror in people’s eyes


Seemed as stormy as the winter sky .

Gear was packed with clothes, boots, hats…

Shots were administered,

And M-16’s and body bags were issued for every soldier going abroad.

Good-byes were said to family and friends


And many tears were bled,


A sick and hideous thought lurked in the back of everyone’s mind—

What will this person going away look like dead?


Planes were boarded with soldiers gear and all.


Engines roared signaling preparation for takeoff

Which gave everyone on board a chance to look back at their loved ones


And seeing that last tear fall from their eye


Turning around and facing forward the plane began to roll away and there was no looking back!

As the planes were beginning to ascend

Many broken hearted and fearful soldiers broke down and cried.

When the planes were in the air, the heavens began to cry!

Rain fell from the sky like cats and dogs

A heavy rain nothing light at all—

It was as if the heavens above could feel everyone’s pain.

Months will pass lying heavy on everyone’s soul:

Now everything is left to fate and the big man in the sky

To take care of the rest…
