An Ode to MH17 (The Arrival)

Atop lonely asphalt
anxious vessels land
with cargo most precious
as sorrowed tarmac waits

ramp dipped finality clanked
sombre miened men marched
bearing beloved remains
loved ones and friends

their dignified trudge
closure to saddened hearts
the coffins bearing more
than just mortal flesh

sweet tender memories
glorious tales of life
their smile filled hearts
and others they had touched

as our beloved return
remember their precious gifts
and may the Almighty
bless their souls with peace.
