Army Mom’s Safe Haven

PETALS ON THE BREEZE
(For my Mom and Dad)

Say a prayer for the dead for whom you grieve -
don't keep them with you when it's time to leave -
Rather, open the windows to the noonday sun
Wish them "Good Journey" for this final one.
Set them free now, like the petals of a flower
Caught on a breeze and then gone-
Remember them always
and move gently on.
