The Voices of Vietnam

The Voices of Vietnam

The voices of Vietnam

The suspicious silence of twilight

The voices of Vietnam

The love of your comrades whispered in the night

The voices of Vietnam

The echoes of the enemy soldiers killed in the fog of the jungle

The voices of Vietnam

The gore of a bullet bringing a silent hell for the shadows diffusing the hope in a comrades eyes

The voices of Vietnam

A soldier's rectitude salvaged by the hope of a love letter

The voices of Vietnam

The truth whispered through the silence of Vietnam in the spooky night

The voices of Vietnam

Enemy soldiers terrified cries in the craziness of hell  

The voices of Vietnam

Killing the hope of love returning home

The voices of Vietnam

The cries of a love lost in the twilight never to write a letter again

The voices of Vietnam

Echoes of a salvaged soldier terrified of the enemy

The voices of Vietnam

The rectitude of a Jungles silence

The voices of Vietnam

The suspicious silent twilight telling truths hidden by the gore of war

The voices of Vietnam

The hidden truth coursing through letters from one love to another

The voices of Vietnam
