The Soldier

Misc Poems

A dozen of her most
Tender kisses
Were planted
On his soft, slender lips
Tears were shed from her eyes
As he saluted the crowd
And looked back at her
One last time
Before he had to
They held her back
As she reached out for him
Calling his name
He turned around and
Boarded the plane
Equipment in hand
A single tear
Ran down his face
And he wondered
If he would ever see
Her again

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A depressing poem I wrote long ago. As you may have guessed, it's from the perspective of a soldier who's being deployed.
