A Poem From My Marine

Though a thousand thoughts my cross my mind
Your face is the only one that reaches through the spands of time
To console the wondering of a lonely heart
And comfort me when the chains of solitude I can’t depart
For the only peace I find is in the beauty of your eyes
In the essence of my soul is where your memories reside
But still I wonder if you know
Though I don’t that I could ever really show
How much I care for you and what I would give
For our hearts to beat as one and in the same person live
Only then could you know what I feel
And that my love is real
So keep these secret words close by your hand
Until the day comes that I hold you agin
