Korean War Bride Caught in the turmoil Of war, to survive, She met a soldier Who kept her alive, Saved her from starving And gave her a son, Died on the battlefield So costly won. Hounded by hatred Her heart could not stand, She brought the child to A strange distant land, Fed him and clothed him The best that she could, Gave him a happy life; Misunderstood By her relations, Her tears fell like rain. Death's sweet oblivion Ended her pain.
