We go to the airport
looking for him
The day he got back
from that God Awful Place

I see people
most of them soldiers
talking and crying
but none of them him

Finally I stop
I see green and brown
I see him smile
He puts out his arms

Then I knew
This was my dad
This was my dad
Back from Iraq

Coming Home Andrew Eisenbrown
