“When?”

St. Thomas Times-Journal - - REMEMBRANCE DAY - By Jes­sica Gal­lacher

When are you com­ing home? Are you com­ing home? It’s been a year Time’s passed slowly since you left I hate feel­ing alone. When will this war end? Af­ter mas­sacring mil­lions of men? Or will it con­tinue un­til the world ends? God, please bring my fa­ther home. Amen. Tic Toc You left five years ago to­day Time has gone as slowly as a heal­ing wound I can’t be­lieve it’s been two years Since you passed. For your birth­day Mom and I eat cake alone As flow­ers grow on your grave­stone A piece of us is miss­ing with­out you at home Home You were sup­posed to come home Not die in a bat­tle zone Leav­ing me with the un­known The “What if…” The “When’s?” When will the world know peace? When will the pain end? Most im­por­tantly When will I see my dad again?
