Army Mom’s Safe Haven

THE END

After months of acting strangely after 'Nam
You saw the Chaplain on the base
You went along, you spoke to him
Put on your "normal" face -

But you and I both knew
How wrong it all became
I didn't know how to fix "it"
It didn't have a name.

I was advised to leave
To go home to Mom and Dad
Give you a chance to rest a bit
Things might not seem so bad.

Once on the plane, I think I knew
It was all over - you weren't "you"
I went away remembering how it once had been.

And I have never seen you or held you again.
