THE BIG ONE II

Sure, I fought in World War II,

Wondering about  #1.

‘Krauts,’ the only enemy then

The second, add Japan.

.

.

Fighting seemed like most everywhere!

Except the U. S. of A.!

Hawaii included.  Sure, Pearl Harbor!

Planes bombing night and day!

.

.

Islands, sure!  Not mentioned much,

The Philippines, did endure!

Yet, for 6 months straight, no let-up.

It was close fighting, for sure!

.

.

“This is not nothing!”  Old timers exclaimed

Why then squads whittled down

To 4 from 12, like, countless times?

Squad Leader and I still around!

.

.

Many who boasted about skirmishes

In the past, not likely to be,

Like Mitch, sat on a tree root staring

Ahead, Still did not see.

.

.

Though looking straight ahead at it, machine gun,

Ours?  Why pointed at me?

Ping!  Took it right between the eyes!

Oh, yes!  It was enemy!

.

.

I was just starting up to help him or

I would have picked one, too!

“Get down here, Sam!”  Lieutenant, changed my mind

So what else could I do?

.

.

So still around Sam.  Sure, do not know why!

Well, God orders, I obey!

But when He tells me, Sam, it is time!

I will sure know what to say!

.

.

“Take me home!  Sure, it has been awhile!”

Did I think I would live forever?

Sure, it is true!  In my Heavenly Home!

Troubles?  Trials?  No, never!

.

.

Yes!  His promise is true!
