It’s January.
My hero leaves today.
Only nine short months,
still all too long.

The calls and messages,
spare in frequency,
brings smiles.
Yet pierce’s your heart,
hoping is not the last.

I pray for his safety.
I pray for his return.

It’s April now.
I’m sitting in class.
I get the message.

My hero
is never coming home.

In that moment
I am motionless.
I feel nothing.
The thoughts in my head,
like his life,
gone completely.

April 3 2012,
The day I lost

My Hero.
SSG Tyler J. Smith
