Can I hear a bird sing?

Or is it the gun fire ringing in my ears

Cold body suddenly warm

A Billion souls eyes smiling hands outstretched

Vortexes of love engulf me smother me

Laughter fresh cut grass descends around us

Peace tranquillity has found this soldier

Welcome Home son

Dry your eyes

Your friends are here

Hold my hand

Together into the light.
