No Purple Hearts In heaven - Anchored In Him



I lost my brother to a foreign land;
I was too young to even understand
There was a knock at the front door,
then Momma wasn't smiling anymore.

The man at the door was a Marine;
the first I've ever seen.
Momma told me to go out and play,
then the preacher came and they started to pray.

Tears ran down Momma's eyes, and
I heard her say, "Why, Lord, Why"?
Father stood there seemingly mindless, all he said was,
"We've lost another of America's finest."

The Marine handed Momma a small velvet case,
inside was a Purple Ribbon, attached to a gold heart with Washington's face.
I asked Momma if it were mine,
but she said, "It's your brother's, Sunshine."

"Momma can we send it to Kevin?"
She answered, "They don't wear Purple Hearts in Heaven."
