Shattered Dreams

Captured in the freshness of youth,
Gathering sweet memories for a lifetime,
Holding tight the dream of her future,

She is standing right there...

Can you see...?

Bearing the duties of life,
Sorting the threads of his confused mind,
Dreaming the soothing words of wife,

He is standing right there...

Do you see...?

Feeling the warmth of mother,
Holding the hand of Father,
Dreaming the hero within him,

He is standing right beside...

Do you see...?

Look...!

Screams...
Bodies...
Tears...

Everywhere...

Can you feel the heated breeze?
Can you hear the distant voices?
Do you see the shattered dreams...
Vaporizing to the air?
