he will return soon

breathlessly she is waiting

mother and son reunion

no longer a boy

youth beaten to submission

war scarred soldier returns home

Departing Sun

her departing Son

left no forwarding address

her wounded heart cried

oh, departing Sun

of her please take no recess

 warmth and light provide
