A Year Ago Today
by Cassie


SSGT HARRELL KIA 4/08/04 FALLUJAH

A year ago today the life we knew forever changed
A year ago today a brave strong woman had her heart completely shattered
A year ago today she became a widow
A year ago today his son lost his daddy, and his hero
A year ago today a man lost the boy he raised
A year ago today the link to six, suddenly became five
A year ago today a community cried as a family
A year ago today the once strong heart stopped beating
A year ago today the war had a new meaning
A year ago today a part of us all died
A year ago today you bravely laid down your life, so we could keep ours
A year ago today you went from guarding our country, to guarding the gates of heaven
Because a year ago today Billy, God took you home to be with Mom
The world is a better place for you having been in it
The world is a safer place because you fought for it
A year later we still hurt, we cry, and we think of you everyday
A year later I still miss my Big Brother, the other half of me
Today Billy we remember you, and we hold you close to our hearts
Today Billy we celebrate you, your smile, your laugh
Today I look at the ocean and see you riding that wave
Today I pray for your marines, God keep them safe
We were given a gift when He made you our brother
Today We Honor You, And Thank You

Dear Billy, Thanks for the memories,
I am forever grateful, for you being my Big Brother
Our Forever Love & Semper Fi,
Your sister Cassie
