The Promise

Found Button
By Amy Ludwig VanDerwater
Inspiration piece

She sewed it on her hero.

(He was just her hero then.)

He wore this button

on his shirt

the summer he was ten.

Eight years sailed by.

He sailed away

to die with other men.

Oh how his mother

wishes

she could hold

her boy

again.
