Tombstones

Tombstones
Rows of tombstones
Lined the grassy knoll
In the midst
A sea of black
Surround a coffin

Tears
Stream down faces
Some uncontrollably
Others held back
All of them
Filled with grief

Pictures
Of the soldier
Who’s taken
His last breath
On display
Above the flag

Flag
Draped over the coffin
The final resting place
Of the one
Who gave it all
For us
