The brave soldier


Had an accident when parachuting

in Afghanistan,

ended up in a wheelchair he did.

He became a writer instead.

He was lucky to have a wife who helped him

when the going got tough.

Tragedy struck his wife got Alzheimer

sent to a nursing home, he could not cope

The poet struggled alone

he lives in a friendly country like Denmark.

Two nurses come, help him every day

to do the chores.

He is free to write. wonderful poems

but he pines for his wife, the night is long

as he waits for dawn.
