Winds blow still

From the sounds and screams  
And when I walked with infantry  
For the wounds were hidden deep  

The enemy still inside my head  
 Combats ghosts and I were repatriated  
And conflict was contantly updated  
 
For that prayer you came to answer  
Brought some solace to that cancer  
The nightmares vivid and now lesser  
 
Comradeship to share that crutch  
Reduce the depths, and curse lifes muck  
Find the bridge of hope and trust  
 
Glimmer hope like your favorite chocolate bars  
Just small steps towards the stars  
Treats like wishes granted and not marred  
 
The missing limbs a balance of befriending  
The broken mind the fragile egg to tend  
Integrity the golden time that mends  
 
 Chains and shackle fall like comets tail  
The thankful power under their own sail  
The winds that universal understanding trail
 
Secret Santa presents, thankfulness and help
Wrapped with love to regain my full health
The ultruism not bought off the shelf
