Army Mom’s Safe Haven

ON MAIN STREET
(For Ed Tomlinson)

On Main Street
in any town,
a Wall could be created -
marked with flags
and floodlights,
all the names
donated.
Someone thought to
put it there
in honor of the
fallen;
those local boys,
forever young,
who answered
America's calling.

They marched off
to foreign lands
and never made it home,
leaving friends and family
more lonely
than alone.

Remember them forever
and hold your
children near
for on a Wall
on Main Street
is someone's name;
his Mother called him
"Dear"
