Sometimes there are no words

Sometimes there are no words

What words are there
To tell a mother or a father
That their child
Will never be coming
Back home

What words do you offer
To a husband
Or a wife

What words can you give
A child
To let them know
That the one that they love
Gave their very life
To preserve their
Freedom and their safety

Sometimes there simply are no words

In times like these
There are six
That are often given
By those fighting back their own tears
Offering their prayers
With a neatly folded flag

Six words that are spoken
Way too often

We are sorry for your loss

Ed Roberts 1/7/12
