Old Ed

Old Ed came home a hero from a war far away
The bravest of the brave a sad old man today
His only son Tom in his early twenties committed suicide
And ten years ago his wife of fifty years Ann of a heart attack died
Though the passing of time on him does tell
For one in his mid eighties he looks physically well
Of his warring days Ed has nothing to say
And he does not even attend the parade on war memorial day
He says i live in the now and life does go on
And the past in the past in the forever gone
The bravest of the brave when the going it got tough
Of war and talk of it he has had more than enough
In the war where many of his comrades fell he did survive
And he looks fit and well for one of eighty five.
