Army Mom’s Safe Haven

(For Bob Wheatley's Uncle, who passed away last year)

Just another average Joe
has passed away today -
another unsung hero,
a hero from another day -
a soldier, a survivor -
of the ravages of War -
he was a husband, son and father;
I cannot say who loved him more.
Father, when You smile on him
and take him to Your Home -
he will be among his brothers
he will never be alone -
He will never be in pain again
he will never be afraid -
He was among the best creations
that You have ever made.
