MY BOY IS COMING HOME TODAY

MY BOY IS COMING HOME TODAY

By John Karis

My boy is coming home today

Smartly dressed children at play

Proud woman pressing his shirt

My boy is coming home today

Military man’s photo on a mantel

The doorbell rings, it is time

My boy is coming home today

Apprehension swells for all

A row of black cars at the ready

My boy is coming home today

Silent procession through the streets

A strong hand holds hers

My boy is coming home today

Red, white, and blue

Folded flag, volley fire, taps

My boy is coming home today

He always stood up for others

And gave his life for them

My boy came home today
