An Old Love Letter

I found an old love letter.

I placed it beneath my head.

As I lay down on my pillow,

So comfy was I in bed,

I dreamed to see my old love

Who had gone away instead

Of staying to start our new life;

He chose trenches for his bed.

He said, “It’s temporary,

But I really feel I must

Go fight for our future, our freedom.

In God, please place your trust.

To guide us and protect us

While on foreign land we roam.

Fighting for peace and freedom;

Pray safely we all come home.”

I had prayed for months to see him

As I watched that great ship dock

My eyes searching the many faces

My heart beating so, and then my eyes lock…

I dreamed of my old love.

I dreamed I felt his touch.

I dreamed I held him in my arms.

Did he know I loved him this much?
