All was silent and all was still,
as night stared at the two men.
One wore a muddy gray uniform;
the other, a muddy blue uniform.
Both lives had ended due to
circumstantial fate. Neither
soldier would return home, marry
or have children. Had the men
met in another time, another
place, perhaps they would have
been friends. But now, all was
silent and all was still, as
night stared at the two men.
