Purple Heart by Roger Robicheau Kelso

Each Purple Heart shall always be
A part of freedom’s history
Hold deep inside a fervent pride
For all who gave, the brave who died
They showed their best for liberty
They stood for us with certainty
Their wound of war, their Purple Heart
Each dared to care and do their part
Some bore a wound which took their life
While others lived past war’s honed knife
True patriots, they faced their call
To keep our nation strong for all
Deep scars of war are carried by
Those who return, and those who cry
Pray for the brave, their loved ones too
Thank God for heroes - all of you

In The Two Hands by Ponggon Chon 1928-1988 Korea

In the two hands


of that girl sitting at the piano
ten together
twenty together
fresh bright fish,
following the sparkling light,
come bursting out one after another.
I went to the seaside
and caught
one wave
of the most thrilling deep blue.
prefers lowly places

That Wonderful Mother of Mine by Richard Kathrine Finno

The moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of that wonderful mother of mine.
The birds never sing but a message they bring
Of that wonderful mother of mine.
Just to bring back the time, that was so sweet to me,
Just to bring back the days, when I sat on her knee.

I pray every night to our Father above,

For that wonderful mother of mine.
I ask Him to keep her as long as He can
That -- wonderful mother of mine.
There are treasures on earth, that made life seem worthwhile,
But there's none can compare to my mother's smile.

You are a wonderful mother, dear old Mother of mine.

You'll hold a spot down deep in my heart,
'Till the stars no longer shine.
Your soul shall live on forever,
On through the fields of time.
For there'll never be another to me,
Each melodious measure,
Oft the teardrops flowing,
Oft they flow from my memory's treasure.

Where is the Peace by Ian Grayson Horswill

Where is the Peace
our hearts keys
that make us invincible
unpiercable, unscathable
Where is the Peace
that lets us sleep
to up the faith we keep
and Where is the Peace
in a world of war
when we know nothing that's in store
Where is the Peace
when money rears its fangs
to divide class and race among all things
Where is the Peace
can't we all just get along
throw our money and all aside and admit we're wrong
to keep humanity strong
Where is our Peace
