The Soldier's Wife

She's drowning in a sea of shadows


The world fades away


The only thing in her tear streaked eyes


Is his dying face


Her heart beats fast while his slows down


She cannot let him go


His sweet blue eyes open one last time


And she is filled with woe


His eyes are filled with burning love 


She doesn't know what to do


Yet she understands the choice he made


To live his life like so few


He smiles such a pure sweet smile


Never fearing death


Her heart is breaking all the while 


As he takes his last breath


A sigh escapes her parted  lips


And she crouches in despair


Through misty eyes she leans down


And kisses his sandy hair


Farewell she says Farewell my love


She knows he's out of pain


Farewell she whispers Farewell my love


And the clouds part in rain
