One Moment in Time

Somewhere in the states:

( her thoughts )

I’m missing today

your heart next to mine,

sharing this moment

with you by my side.

Somewhere on a dusty battlefield:

( his thoughts )

I wanted to stay,

the choice was not mine,

this very moment

miss you by my side.

I’m missing your touch

the closeness you gave,

the feeling of safe

with you by my side.

I long for your touch

the nearness of you,

I pray your okay

miss you by my side.

I’m missing your smile

gentle and kind,

the warmth that it gave

with you by my side.

I remember your smile

warm and sincere,

long for it now

miss you by my side.

I’m missing your voice

soft in my ear,

sweet nothings whispered

with you by my side.

I remember your voice

it comforts my mind,

saying I love you

miss you by my side.

I’m missing the us

that we used to be,

it’s so lonely now

miss you by my side.

I’m thinking of us

and wish I could be,

walking again

with you by my side.

Two hearts…two thoughts…one moment in time

She was at home when the news came…he died in battle for his country.
