A Poem by Coyote Poetry
Peace shall come
My good friend. The war is over for you. You fought the good fight and now.
You rest with 40 thousand white crosses near Paris. Just men and boys who fought the last war to end all wars.
My brothers. More men and boys will come and join you, just more men who fought the good fight.
I hope one day we learn. War cost plenty. Freedom was very costly. One alive and strong men. They have found their peace. Their final place.
Today I stood by your grave. Once me and you, we were soldiers. I stand alone and I learn. The deep payment of war. Once you and your family took me in. Added a stranger, a fellow soldier to your family gatherings. You taught me. Family and children are life. We are alone without children at our feet. Today I brought my two grandsons to the flags of the Michigan soldiers lost to the new wars. Names and faces of men lost to war. Old men and young men stand by names of missed friend. The old timers from World War two are the wisest. They shake our hands and they tell us. We are the leftovers. We must remind the people. Great men die for freedom.
Today I pray for peace and I pray for our leaders to lead with concern, kindness and love. Send food, water and medicine. Not soldiers and guns.
