100 Word Wednesday #80

What is the feeling we see here

Seeing persons from the rear

Faces full of goodbye sorrow

Or smiles of a returning hero

Some would say a bit of both

Darkening clouds may tell the truth

Whitened clouds may feelings soothe

Surrounded by the waiting crowd

To say goodbye and cry out loud

Or a welcoming and hesitant

Unknowing of the return intent

All loved ones wish them to stay

But duty calls them back in days

They pray, they write notes of concern

While far away awards are earned

It will always be this way

Young people in the fray.
