By Robert W. Beskar || Poem Categories

Come Take Us Home country as flag
We did our jobs, and we did them well
and because of fate, we're in this "Hell"!

We're POWs and MIAs...
Still living with hope... still counting the days.

We're out of sight, and out of mind...
Almost forgotten... by all mankind.

But there are those, who seek to find...
those of us, still left behind.

For we still trust that we'll be found,
and then be freed and homeward bound.

We don't know how, that will be done...
But we believe that day will come!

The war goes on, for us that wait...
another day... another date.

And those we love so far away...
Are in our hearts each passing day.

We pray to God for our release...
So we can have some lasting peace.

We're POWs and MIAs...
Come take us home... why not today?
