Among Cottonwoods   by: Marilyn Griffin

Even during war times…

The heart yearns for home…

Sinks and climbs…

Forever roams…

 

A soldier I may be…

But, longing for Peace…

Over the sea…

Wanting fighting to cease…

 

A moment comes…

Deep in the woods…

Heartstring strums…

Among Cottonwoods…

 

Home deserted…

People have fled…

Some abducted…

Some have bled…

 

Left behind…

No longer played…

It once shined…

As bodies swayed…

 

To the music…

That brought joy…

Singing the lyric…

Awakes a young boy…

 

Leaving family…

To fight for country…

Leaving wistfully…

Loving them dearly…

 

Returning years later…

 It was found…

Feeling eager…

To feel what was bound…

 

The only thing left…

The piano I played…

On ears now deft…

And life that is frayed…
