A Soldier’s Dream by Roland R. Ruiz

A Soldier’s Dream

Dedicated To: Alfred Magallanes, former Army PFC who bravely served 1 tour in Vietnam from 1967-1968

In the dreary dreams of a raptured heart
Lies a volume of sadness

Much akin to a parting thought
That leaves an emptiness, deep inside
Of loneliness and despair

As soldiers fight in wars, that seem so far away
Life and death march hand in hand

Like a shadow in a raptured heart
Grief sometimes appears

So when brave soldiers die in wars
Thank not of losing heart

Remember the dreams they leave undone
As life begins to fade

Only then will we feel the pain
Of the emptiness that’s left behind
