Purple Heart Tragedy

Updated on June 10, 2013

A Soldier and a Friend

I can't begin to imagine what

was going through your head.

Obviously it was to much

because now you are dead.

By your own hand and

a bullet from a gun.

What happened my friend

your life had just begun.

I cried and screamed

when I got the news.

Then I was angry, pissed

off and mad at you.

What were you thinking

when you pulled that trigger?

Didn't you realize God's plans

for you were so much bigger?

A soldier you were, friend

as well as a hero too.

A Purple Heart you received,

because you were you.

I will never know the

battles you were fighting.

Forever in my heart, and

in my memory you are smiling.
