Army Mom’s Safe Haven

Christina: I Am... Soldiers' Mothers' Cries


I Am...
a cacophony of sound
thunderous and echoing
off the ground
and moving upwards
to the heavens
and the cloud ~

I Am...
only able to be heard
by God;
a sound so loud;
born of terrible pain
and made up of many
a child's first name.

I Am...
sent forth from an aching heart
ushered by the angels
through silvered clouds,
and rainbows rent
with grief.

I Am...
a dying leaf
on the family tree

I Am now,
what will no longer be -

and the deafening sound
causes God to sigh

I Am...
the cacophony of
the soldiers' mothers'
