Writings from deployment series, Wrote this when I was in Afghanistan 2011-2012.


Wont you keep me
closer by your side
like a small token
of love and appreciation
candlelight under stary sky's
music of the night
keep me in your eyes
watch the flicker of the light
hypnotized and mesmerized
like a dancer on the moon
like surfing the Milkyway
like a summers swoon
keep me by your side
leader of the band
sing me to sleep
we'll lay side by side
deep in our hearts
caress through the sheets
tracing moonlight silhouettes.
