Christopher Came Home Today

Christopher Came Home Today

By Kira A. Moore

Marine funeral


Christopher came home today,

though I did not see him.

Not yet they said,

Not yet.


I never got

to say “Hello.”


I saw Christopher today.

So handsome,

In dress blues,

hat in hand.


But I did not see his eyes,

his beautiful eyes,

as blue as the sky.


I got to say,

“Good bye.”

  1. Kira,
    So I’m sitting here at work, and it’s been a frustrating start to the day, dealing with some BS. Then I read your poem and I suddenly realize that there’s so many more important things in life than worrying about the small stuff.
    Thank you,
