The Wall
by Paul I. Alfaro

I was asleep so many years,
Trying to forget the past.
The dreams I had so long ago
Are now hidden in a misty cloud.
But sometimes a gentle wind or
A song will bring back a tear
Or two and I remember
And I hear her call.

The wall, it reaches for me.
As I feel her grip
She embraces me with loneliness
And fills my heart with sorrow.
For I see my friends
And the names of men
That shall be forever still;
Their voices no longer heard
Except as a distant cry
From the hollows deep within
The evil soul of that
Black marbled granite wall.

Fear and death were my companions
When I was young
(And thought I was a man)
But I escaped them so long ago
When I came home, from that
Far and distant land.
But the wall calls to me
And I cry now, as I could not then
For I love her, God help me.
But that marbled wall brought
My friends back again.

Yes, a fitting tribute to those that died;
Simply names, row by row
With no reason why.
Just a black marbled granite wall,
That reaches out and makes you cry.
