I am Coming Home to You
She kissed him passionately when he left
Her letters came often telling of her love and
how much she missed him,
Her sweet love words made his head swim.
Long were the battles and bloody death calls
from his friends who died,
Some fell by his side as he fought and cried.
His only lifeline he hung onto~ her love
letters with each word branded on his heart,
Her sweetness seem to float above him~ to
promise never again would they be apart.
A sniper shot him on his 450th day in battle and
for months he lie in the hospital fighting for his
He dreamed only about his Sweetheart, his wife.
Finally, on the Greyhound bus home~ to surprise her,
When he walked into his home~ it was empty,
not a stir.

Opening the bedroom door with a smile,
His heart stopped beating and his breath was
gone for a while.
His precious wife was in bed with another man,
And, all he could do was stare and stand.
In those seconds his heart turned to stone,
He walked away from her---their love was gone.
His whiskey bottle became his best friend,
Because~never empty and it never left his hand.
Yes, she ran after him and tried to talk to him at
every town event,
However, when a love dies---second chances are
Forgiveness did not live in his heart of hurt and
His wife and Whiskey killed him~they were to
His parents stood on the cold Georgia ground~their
The preacher’s words were heart-wrenchingly
Their sweet trusting boy lies underneath the icy
His wife and Whiskey took him away.
She stood dressed in black with tears falling, but
not a care for her~ whom they blamed,
No one called her name, nor, cared if she cried as
his love ones felt maimed.
She stood alone over his grave, and talked softly so
no one could see,
Walk slowly my darling---I will be with you soon
---please my love wait for me.
