 Poems by The Old Cowboy

If I Get lost

This is written for all veterans from all wars              



If I get lost I am sorry its not my fault
Some days I slip back to a painful time
To days when in a battle I had fought
Fighting those old feelings in my mind

If I get lost look for me I am still here
Just remembering what happened in the past
Needing someone to hold and just be near
Gone but for a little while it will not last

If I get lost please reach for my hand
That simple touch becomes the start
For veterans who served this proud land
Who still stand for the flag and cover their hearts

If I get lost know I am not alone
Others fight the very same dreams
About all those different war zones
Where nothing is what it seems

If I get lost feel no shame for me
Though my head be hidden by a dark hood
Look past my weakest hours to really see
That I just need to be understood
