Good-Bye Love

As I lie with my love,

He holds me tight,

I lean over and kiss him good-night,

I awake the next morning,

He is not there,

I find a note lying beside me,

"I've gone off to war...",

I couldn't read the rest,

I wait for weeks,

Suddenly a knock at the door,

Naval Marines holding a flag,

They say they were sorry,

I fall to the floor,

My love was shot by his own general,

They hand me a letter,

It's from my love,

"I will always love,

Please carry on,

Live life to the fullest,

And take care of our son,

Always remember well be together someday,"

I cry myself to sleep,
I remember his touch,

I love you my love...,

Forever till dusk.
