'I love you...' I whisper,
across the expanse
the gaping darkness,
the thrilling chance?

My heart it slows,
as you turn and leave me,
I stand in the snow,
alone, wondering bleakly.

'How could you go?'
leave me here in this cold,
that never will cease
until you return safe home.

'The War,' you say 
'It's my duty to go,
I must serve my country
baby please don't let go.

For I am always on your heart,
as those stars are on that flag,
as the burning desire,
for each other's love that we have.

So don't you dare cry,
you'll get me started too,
I love you, my dear,
I'll come home soon to you...'
