“The Soldier” By Sadie Goldberg

At the end of the Sunset,

The soldier wins the battle

But not this soldier.

 

At the end of the Sunset,

The man comes home,

But not this man.

 

At the end of the Sunset,

The wounded are healed,

But not him.

 

At the end of the Sunset,

The journey will start,

But not this wanderer.

 

He did not win,

He did not come home,

He was never healed,

And his journey ended many sunsets ago…
