Did You See Me? Part Two

Tags: thoughts

Did you see me?

Did you see me on the bus,

At the first stop four run north?

I saw you.

Did you see us being sworn in,

Standing ten rows back?

I saw you.

Did you see the late night crying,

Empty beds in the morning?

I saw you.

Did you see me puke, 

On the 20 mile force run?

I saw you.

Did you see me leaving the plane,

Tan Son Nhut  Air  Base?

I saw you.

Did you see me standing listening,

As the black body bags came by?

I saw you.

Did you see me at firebase Polar,

As I questioned why?

I saw you.

Did you see the Hueys,

Take the broken and dead?

I saw you. 

Did you see my weak smile at her,

With only one eye but what beauty?

I saw you...
