A Letter

A Letter

She’s halfway around the world as she writes him a letter,
sending her words of hope that might help make him better.
She sends him photos she hopes he’ll hang up on his wall,
to help remind him of the once peaceful times he may recall.

He’s halfway around the world as he opens her letter,
hoping what she has to say can help make him better.
He smiles as he hangs the photos up on his wall,
as he thinks of the once peaceful times he can still recall.

He’s halfway around the world as he answers her letter,
trying so hard to think of things not to sadden her.
He sends her a photo of Iraq, such a far away land;
he flashes the peace sign on the gun in his right hand.
