My Last Set of Orders

I depart on my mission. to a new place.
Where flowers grow endless, with beauty and grace.

“Now I am free!”. As I shout it aloud.
To walk in green meadows, and soar among clouds.

No misery, no pain, no sadness, and grief.
Just serenity, my angel, my father, and peace.

My final orders. “Live Forever! And inherit the land.”
Not a terrorist in sight. or unwanted sand.

Walk the roads paved in gold.swim the powder blue lakes.
No flashes from warfare.only light from his face.

There’s a time for each person to join God and explore.
Well this is my time. and nothing quite more.

As the light hits my face.I kneel down, then I sigh.
Do you love me dear Jesus? And he said”Semper Fi!”

Time to come home dear brvother
   Your tour of duty through
   You’ve given as much as anyone
   Could be expected to do

You have not failed your brothers
   You clearly gave it all
   And through your selfless actions
   Others will hear the call

Just a few steps further
   The smoke will start to clear
   Others here will guide you
   You have no need of fear

So take your place of honor
   Among those who have gone before
   And know you will be remembered
   For now and evermore

                                   Robert Langley
