"Turned to Gold"

I think the saddest day
That someone ever told
When someone tells a mother
That her blue star turned to gold.

Her head goes up so proudly
While her heart within her dies
She may be choked with sorrow
But she never cries.

She has waited for days on end
For the war to pass
When she could see her son again
And hold him close at last.

Now, the news has come
In words so bleak and cold
Which tells her what she fears;
Her blue star has turned to gold.
