Love Story

Let me tell you
About a love and a life
And missed moments
That were meant to be
But fated to fail

He was a soldier
She was a fighter
And if ever there was true love
It was theirs
And if ever there was a tragedy
It was them

You see
They met and they sparked
And he deployed
To a land of sand and rock
And she wasn’t much of a piner
So she fought on with her battles
But she missed his smile
And the way he understood her silences

When he came home
With memories he would never lose
He longed for her fire and smile
But it was gone
Beneath dirt and stone

And so the love story never finished
Just made a tenuous start
That was enough to torture
Those left behind
