The Attic

A little boy, standing
In a room full of Memories.
There is a picture of
A man, standing proud,
Wearing a military uniform.
He is handsome and very tall.
The little boy opens
A chest full of
Old things.
He pulls out a picture
Of three people,
A nice looking family,
But now something is missing.
He puts on a jacket
That is much too large,
It hangs over his hands.
He takes out large black
Boots, steps into them,
A woman comes in.
The sight brings tears
To her eyes.
They both stand in silence
A hero, a father
A man standing proud
in a military uniform
Looking down from above.
