Poem: I’m Sorry, Dear Soldier …a Memorial Day blessing

I’m sorry, dear soldier

That I did not fight strongly enough for peace

That I surrendered to war

That you paid the price

Because we couldn’t figure out how to love each other

Because I couldn’t figure out

Anything more creative, Anything better

Than sending you off

To kill and be killed

I’m sorry, dear soldier
