Afghanistan

I see this photo of you
with your kid brother
both of you smiling
before Afghanistan
What was it
to know you then
so bright and full of promise
most of all the one
you made to your mother
to live through it
I know you now only quietly
Was it war that sobered you
or were you always so
fathomless?
