Could you say hello,
remind them of a time and place,
when we would become men,
tell them we cannot forget
ever the tragedy,
the drudgery of being in a place
someone told us needed us to be there.
Yet could you please say hello,
I know that when I looked in her eyes,
when his smile reached my own eyes,
I knew then I could be a happy man,
if I might feel they were about to,
well then after all
if they might be able to,
I could maybe, might suggest
we all make it out of there.
