A Soldier's Return - Poem by Billy Loving
A voice loud and clear
Where can you be my dear?
Beyond the sand, beyond the sea?
In a forest hidden behind a tree?
On some city road?
Down a desolate highway, driving a heavy load?
Trekking across the sand?
Somewhere in a far off land?
Ghostly vision of a face
Not a single hair out of place
Eyes, soft pale blue
A yearning, trying to subdue
Full luscious lips painted pink
Playful smile, enticing wink
Absolute silence, unable to reply
No matter how hard I try
My soul doth yearn
Desires still burn
Someone so missed
Lips waiting to be kissed
A sullen, saddened heart
As I awake with a start
Sleepy eyes, searching around
Jarred by the plane touching down
In her arms, I yearn to be
Out the window such a sight to see
In a crowd, there she awaits
So much excitement, my heart it elates
A soldier returning from war
On that chapter, I close the door
A new one soon to start
With glee, I quickly depart
