    We used to play toy soldiers
    Everyday in summer
    "To take on the world"
    You used to cry
    We were like Dumb and Dumber

    I always tried to protect you
    with camouflage and covering fire
    We would always win these battles
    Its you I'll always admire

    This is as far as it went with me
    But you had to go all the way
    Join the Forces you heard 'em shout
    You did!.. to my dismay

    I waved goodbye to that morning train
    and said goodbye to you Paul
    For a few months i thought at first
    Until I got the dreaded call

    I' ll always try to protect you
    with camouflage and covering fire
    We will always win these battles
    Its you I'll always admire

    Killed in action, was all i was told
    that doesn't help ease the pain
    My heart is always now so cold
    My head's just filled with rain

    They said that you are a hero
    But to me you always were
    I love you Paul for always
    Memories of you, never blur

    I should have tried to protect you
    With camouflage and covering fire
    We would have won this battle
    You I will always admire

    I wish i had gone with you
    Like in our chldhood days
    Then maybe you'd still be here
    I wouldn't be in this daze.

    I hate them for taking you from me
    Your death needed to be avenged
    I wanted "To take on the World"
    But then that would be revenge

    I wish i had protected you
    With camouflage or covering fire
    We could have won that battle
    You will Always be Admired.

    That is such a beautiful emotional piece....It almost brought tears to my eyes. No, wait it did. This is such a powerful, powerful poem. I have nothing but good things to say about this poem. I loved it. It was very sad but oh so beautiful. You did such a good job and explaining in detail. Its going on my faves for I admire this poem alot. Take Care.

      Such a wonderful write. I think that you really captivated a lot of people with the power in this one. The emotions on this.....I agree....WOW.....

    I am over here feeling as though I am lost as well. At times, we lose loved ones....and we always have that thought in the back of our minds...If only I would have been there. I would have made things different.

    Yet, destiny is what it is right. I know that a person can put themselves in a situation that they can't handle....but at other times....it is out of their control.

    You showed a lot of heart with this write. I think that the format, the rhythm, and the wording....PERFECT!

    I am amazed!

    Great job!

    Pretty powerful piece, no? But that's probably what you had in mind. I think it was nicely put, and the repitition of the one part really added. A lot of times, it won't sound good or look good, but in this case, it did!

    I really liked it, sorry I don't have much else to say....

      Very powerful piece. You can feel the sadness when you read it. I liked the rhyming and the repitition of that one verse. It shows how much you wished you could go back.

      This was deeply felt. Deeply written in love, sadness, and beauty. I think it's beautiful how much you loved him but it's terribly sad that he died in combat. I nearly cried while reading this. I like the way this was written. Good ryhme. This was great. What I look for in poems more than anything is the poem's story. What the meaning behind it is. This....was truly felt and was beautiful and tragic. Great write.
