Army Mom’s Safe Haven

Herb Neeland, The Ghostman/Medic SVN - Then and Now
For my friend, Herb Neeland, then and now
The Ghostman/Medic SVN

ONE DAY TO GO

Taking a smoke break
Waiting for wounded
Squinting into the sun

What's that out there,
out near the tree line;
The glint of a gun?

So tired, so hot
leaving tomorrow...
One day to go
to get out of this sorrow

One more glance
out into the sun

definitely "somebodies" out there
with more than one gun
Ghostman has never
felt more alone

tracers all night
and the spitting of night-fire

Only one day to go,
God,
let me go home...
