| The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light,
I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight.
My wife was
asleep, her head on my chest,
Outside the snow
fell, a blanket of white,
lights in the tree, I believe,
My eyelids were
heavy, my breathing was deep,
The sound wasn't
loud, and it wasn't too near,
Perhaps just a
cough, I didn't quite know,
My soul gave a
tremble, I struggled to hear,
Standing out in
the cold and the dark of the night,
A soldier, I
puzzled, some twenty years old
Alone in the dark,
he looked up and smiled,
"What are you
doing?" I asked without fear
Put down your
pack, brush the snow from your sleeve,
For barely a
moment I saw his eyes shift,
"It's my duty to
stand at the front of the line,
No one had to ask
or beg or implore me,
"My Gramps died
at 'Pearl' on a day in December,"
"My dad stood his
watch in the jungles of 'Nam
"I've not seen my
own son in more than a while,
Then he bent and
he carefully pulled from his bag,
"I can live
through the cold and the being alone,
"I can stand at
my post through the rain and the sleet,
"I can carry the
weight of killing another
"So go back
inside," he said, "harbor no fright;
"But isn't there
something I can do, at the least,"
"It seems all too
little for all that you've done,
Then his eye
welled a tear that held no regret,
"For when we come
home, either standing or dead,
I recently became
involved with the reunion committee for the Unit in which I commanded
in Vietnam, which is Comapny A, 7th Engineer Battalion, 1st Brigade,
5th Inf Div (Mech).
