Eyes of Blue
A people persecuted beyond imagination;Submitted by: windjmr61
To help them he felt, was his obligation.
He joined the Army in World War II;
Not knowing his hell would be Eyes of Blue.
When he reached Normandy, the beaches were red;
Crawling over his brothers who were already dead.
To give this tyrant, this devil his due;
Not knowing his own demons would be Eyes of Blue.
He rounded a building, securing a town;
As a young German soldier was just coming round.
He plunged his bayonet, the quicker of the two;
Killing the young soldier with Eyes of Blue.
He knelt down beside him with tears in his eyes;
How long this moment would last, he did not realize.
Closing the boys eyes, as he felt he should do;
Thinking never again to see those eyes of blue.
He killed many enemy in Germany and Japan;
It was always hard, taking life from a man.
None would haunt him, this he now knew;
As long as the young soldier with Eyes of Blue.
He died an old man, to heaven he went;
For this honorable soldier, mercy was sent.
First time since the war, so sad but true;
A peaceful sleep, not seeing Eyes of Blue.
