My Marine Leaving for War


I can’t explain how I feel
Reality has set in.
7 months away for war
Will I ever see him again?

My heart aches
He’ll be gone, it’s true.
I tremble and shake
I whisper “I love you.”

This is not a dream.
This is a reality
This life I’ve chosen
Has many impossibilities.


Knowing he’ll be away
For a very long while
I try not to fall apart
So I look at him and smile.

“I’ll always be in your heart,
Waiting and holding on
To our love and our dreams.
This I know will make us strong”

“Be safe, come back to me.'
Softly I whispered in his ears.
Knowing in time
He'll be back in half a year.

Kind solace in a dying hour!

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
