We only had right now
And right now was all we needed.
There was no past, no future, no war.
I had him and he had me.
How long this would last I have no idea
But I pray that it will last for the rest of my life,
For the rest of eternity.
But I know that isn’t true,
That he would leave and fight strangers,
That he would kill another human.
And that he may never come back.
So, I put my chin up,
Smile a smile that is everlasting,
And look into his eyes one last time
As the camera flashes.
