A soldier's life is decided by men behind desks. He is not alone but often lonely.
To My love in Uniform

Wherever you are sent;
unknown roads, flying above clouds,
tossed on dangerous seas.
I pray letters of love lift you
high to touch part of me.

When we are together,
skies are deeper blue,
flower petals velvet soft,
each color, a vivid hue.
We weave a tapestry of love.

You, a golden sun in my sky,
silver moon lighting my path,
the soft grass I daydream on.
I hear your voice in my heart,
dreams begin, embrace you.

If you must leave home first,
Half my heart goes with you.
I will lose the joy you give.
A single beat will be heard.
I need two beats to truly live.

Wait for me, my love,
in your peaceful dreams.
I believe entwined hearts
will gain my access to
eternity's healing door.
