THE UNFORGOTTEN BOOM
You, SFC Christopher D. Henderson, should be here yet you have gone;
And it will be forever; so very long!
You didn’t suffer from what I am told;
It came in an instant not when you were old.
The Unforgotten Boom of an IED;
That took your life!
The Unforgotten boom of an IED;
That changed our life!
The Unforgotten boom;
And then you, my love, my hero, were gone!
I wish I could change the course of your fate.
You had so much love for me and not hate.
You wore the uniform with pride;
You were my soldier that died.
You were so very brave and so very bold!
Your story through me will always be told!
You will be always loved!
You will never be forgotten!
SFC Henderson is my husband. He was a great person. He was always
willing to help someone. I wrote this poem one day when I couldn't find the
words to express myself outwardly. I will always love and miss him dearly.
To whomever set up this page for him Thank you from the bottom of my

Memories are all I have left
Of happier times.
All that is left of who you use to be
Of all the things you use to love to do.
Memories of what it was like to be
Your twin sister.
That special connection,
No one else could even imagine.
Memories are all I can hold on to
Now that I can’t hold on to you.
The only thing I have to keep you close
To my heart.
Memories are all we can share
And try and remember every detail a
About your wonderful life.
Memories of the day you died.
How I wish I could have hugged you
One more time.
One more time to say “I Love You”
Memories of the pain
That is forever in my heart.
Of sadness that the world
Has lost a wonderful Man.
This is a poem that I wrote since losing my twin brother. I love you
Chris and you will never be forgotten.
