A Shocking Surprise

Jeffery Williams

A shocking surprise,

overwhelmed my heart,

seeing you standing,

right in front of me,

at my job today.

To this surprise,

right before my eyes,

breathless of words,

all I could do,

was embrace you,

ever so tight,

my heart beats,


You are back,

my best friend,

for two weeks,

from Iraq,

to spend time,

with family & friends.

A shocking surprise,

which I will never,

forget deep in my heart.
