He Doesn’t Talk About it Much

He doesn’t talk about it much

But the pain is there

As he remembers

Those Hellish days

In Vietnam

When he watched buddies die

And his family sat vigil

Around the phone

Praying it wouldn’t ring

Or the telegram wouldn’t come.

He doesn’t talk about it

But some things don’t need to be said.
