Fragile Flames

In remembrance of the children who perished on the C-5A plane crash of the 1975 Vietnam orphan Babylift.

By Sue-San King
In the great expanse of sky you soar
rising with the April heat.
Open your eyes little ones;
do you see?
below lies your country,
serene and vigilant
calling you to its embrace,
the primal cradle of your birth.
My brothers and sisters
I have not forgotten,
such fragile flames
in mid-flight.
© Copyright 2001 Sue-San King

Sue-San King was evacuated from a Cambodian orphanage as a baby to Saigon, Vietnam. Subsequently, she was brought to Canada during Operation Babylift from Vietnam in April 1975, on the flight following the C-5A crash.
