Consummate pain
Like a cruel wrench
Gripped his heart -
And crushed, it bled
A father's tears.

No words define
His anguished grief
A wretched loss
His own son...
His seed.

The baby he carried
In his arms
And nurtured
In paternal love
Now broken, scarred -
A shriveled man,
His father's eyes
Now bleed.

He'd take him back
To be his child
Return him safely
To his past
No war could touch him
Hidden there
His eyes see through
An hourglass.

My boy, my son-
What have they done?
Your life a mangled mess-
What's left to do
These father's tears
Will not replace
The boy, the man
That I once knew!

The sadness is so palpable it strikes the nerve, and all the more poignant with the control of expression and the direct delivery.

This brought tears to my eyes. War does terrible things to people, and death is not the only casualty. Wonderful write that tugs at the heart.
