Tribute to a Vietnam Vet
Bullets whiz around meAs I bury in this fieldI see a wounded comradeAnd move to act as shield Covering his mangled bodyI provide the cover fireI see his violent injuryAnd try to save his life Holding him togetherI'm praying we'll be savedNight creeps in around usAnd eventually becomes day Guns still explode around usBut I see help is on it's wayA helicopter lands nearbyAn escape is to be made Adrenalin surges through meAs I heft the man and runThe chopper's our salvationIf I get us there we're done Every step is in slow motionAs I watch the bullets passWe finally reach our saviorThe motors start to blast Flying out and awayI'm numb from the ordealThat we have just survived thisIs definitely surreal My comrade he survivesThrough injuries severeI never got to know himIt would take many, many years We "met" again at a reunionHe knew just who I wasHumbled and emotionalHe embraced me in a hug One of my best friends nowA staple in my lifeRespecting what we went throughWe don't mention that tough time Because it's hard for me nowTo speak of those we lostI will not ever talk aboutMy time in Vietnam?
