POW/MIA's Remembered

What do you think they are being told
as they struggle through each day?
Since we haven't come to bring them home,
do they believe the things "they " say?

How can you forget about them, and
all they have had to go through?
Don't you worry they may now believe
that what they're being told is true?

What is it that keeps them going
through the endless days and nights?
Or, did they lose all hope long ago,
and, give up without a fight?

If one day they make it home,
will you look straight into their eyes?
Will you have your answers ready,
when they ask the question WHY?
