Mt. Soledad Veteran’s Memorial

stock footage gray storm cloudsUp the winding, steep path
through hazy La Jolla clouds
thousands of men and women
look over a city of canyons
upon royal, pearl waves
their service commemorated
their sacrifice remembered

You would have liked it here
you would have read the plaques
you would have told me a story
of your Dad
or about Vietnam
or about the Army

You would have remembered
long lost friends
and told me their names
you would have concentrated
and read the times and places
and I would have watched your face

I wish I had brought you here
