In the Shadow of the Rising Sun

The Story of Robert Davis, POW and D Battery 515th CAC, Orphan Unit of Bataan

We heard from the boys today

 

Well, we heard from the boys today.

The sun was brighter; how dull it had been lately.

There was a moon last night, how beautiful and romantic it was;

Strange; there has not been a moon for so long.

Yes, we heard from the boys today.

I cried; but this time I felt better, I had always felt worse before.

To our friends; so many times we had said, no word. But today OH BOY —

My back is sore and my hand is numb from the good wishes of those good friends

Yes, we heard from the boys today.

I wanted to celebrate; I wanted the whole town to celebrate;

Yet, I cannot celebrate until my boys' comrades have been heard from also.

The cash register had a bright cheerful ring today; so long, it had been a dull sickening thud.

Yes, we heard from the boys today.

I smiled at my wife and gosh, she's still beautiful, and I suddenly recall

How she has enabled me to keep my chin up, and now I am looking forward

To the greatest day of my life — when the boys come marching home;

And once more we can see Old Glory, the symbol that has cost us so much,

And yet which means so much.

And here I am “Fiddlin' while Rome Burns”

Yes, we heard from the boys today.

 

Dedicated to my two sons; Lt. Dwayne and Sgt. Gene taken prisoner on Bataan.
