A Brother Down

This poem was writtn for my Husband in memory of his dear
friend lost in
Operation Iraqi Freedom.
I sit and think about it
And I don't understand why
Your candle was lit today
My buddy had to die.
Memories od your face
The good times that we had
Now you've been taken from this place
To the presence of the Lord
Though; still I may cry and be sad.
You did your Country Proud
And you're a Hero in the Corps
But in my eyes you're my brother,
my mentor, and my friend.
One day we will see each other
One day in the end
Till then I will salute you
As I see Old Glory wave
And in my heart you will remain
Till I see you again
My brother, and my friend.

In Loving Memory Of Ssgt Tejada.
