7 August 1918

Oh, the anguish of his parents;
Oh, the bitter tears they shed,
When they heard their boy was missing,
And they wondered was he dead.
Oh, those weeks and months of torture;
Oh, the agony and pain;
And they wept and prayed and wondered—
Will their boy come home again?
“Killed in action,” came still later,
But still they’ll watch and wait for him.
