to my Dad ...
Im so sorry we sent you away to fight a war that wasn't ours, to face the worst of human kind.
Im so sorry we sent you away to forge the man out of a boy, in a place so foreign you lost your mind.
Im so sorry we sent you away to look at fear right in the face and to meet your end in a lonely place.
Im so sorry we never had a chance to know each other, my sister, myself and our brother.
Despite the void and with memories few, my heart and soul cries. i miss you.
