from his wheelchair
he fingers 
the Purple Heart
over his feeble heart

Search for inner peace

he roams
the rocky hills
in search of inner peace
which his world
cannot give

Fleeting life

I know now
why our embrace
was so tight
your last farewell
to fleeting life

alone in my new 
retirement house
the chilly welcome
of Santa Ana wind
