Pfc. Steven Acosta

My friend

when you left,
you were a child -
starlight in those eyes,
gateway to heaven
in that smile.
we never met,
but perhaps one day
you'll meet those
of us who waited
your return.
and yours, and yours -
all Heroes.
then we'll have
a ticker-tape
parade to thank you,
to welcome all you
Men and Women

Nice words, Penny. Be proud.

Thank you, dear lady. Your kind words are much appreciated, but this doesn't even come close to yours.
