Standing in front of the wall,
Touching the names
Of the soldiers killed in Vietnam.

Looking for someone important,
Remembering the good times they had,
Tears trickling down his cheeks.

Who is he thinking of?
His wife, child, parent, or friend?
Tears trickling down his cheeks.

I got inspired while on a class trip to D.C., and witnessed this at the Vietnam Memorial
