The Lyrics

I Can Grieve
For guys and gals who gave their lives
On that far shore
I Can Grieve
For all the fallen soldiers brave
Must there be more?
Just because I do not feel
This war is right..
Should not mean I..
Don't feel their fight..
I Can Grieve,
Yes, I Can Grieve..

I believe this war began
For no good cause
And soon must end..
When newscasts report more dead,
For prayer, I pause..
To comprehend..
Everytime I hear the words,
"A roadside bomb"
My mind returns,
To Viet Nam..
And with each Mom,
I Can Grieve

Everytime I hear the words,
"A roadside bomb"
My thoughts return
To Viet Nam..
So, with each Mom,

I'm not giving you fives for humor because that doesn't seem to be your intention. Thanks for the empathy. (Rhymes with "Thanks for the memory.")

Simply beautiful, AFW. Every "patriot" who calls those who appose the war traitors, should read this and hang their heads in shame. Sadly, I can only give this 5' deserves MUCH more.

This may seem like a shameless plug, but you might want to read this....written a VERY long time ago (and the situation remains the same)...
