“A Soldier’s Birthday”
©2019 Written by Darryl John Kennedy
It’s time to say, “To All: Goodnight,”
At last, my day is done.
For this soldier’s woe, and painful strife,
Fade slow upon his ending life.

It’s time to say, “To All: Goodnight,”
The curse of bullets told.
And, when they ask, “just who he was,”
Perhaps you’ll say, “not old.”

For, I wasn’t born
On this lovely morn
Just to say, “To All: Goodnight.”
