As Pablo Neruda Would Say


My Love my journey is at its end
home has lived within me every night
since I've been gone.
I've seen more than I could bear
a world without care
I made friends and fought enemies
found ways to understand different perceptions
and at the same time arrive at a loss for words.
It has been a war out here
day to day a new battlefield
prayers turned into action
actions turned into reward.
Hope of ever returning home gone long ago
alone I stay and through fail attempts
now i find my self returning back to you
What will be of us our children
I do not know for certain
I do know I will smile for where I been
and cry for where I've arrive again.
May God bless our unity with sanity
May life provide us a long life
to hold our grandchildren.
I'm packing my bags and heading home
my inner war is over for this old man.
