UNIFORM OF GREY

Many days have past

Since that moment which couldn't last

You are to go far away from me

To a land across the sea

I plead with you to stay

There must be another way

You kiss me one last goodbye

As I try to not cry

And I see you walk away

In your uniform of grey

Seasons come and go

Sunshine gives way to snow

But all I see is you walking away

In that cursed uniform of grey

A letter addressed to me

My heart is freed

The letter says you coming home

I no longer will be alone

I love you come sunshine or rain

Even though you now walk with a cane

I never again will see you walk away

In your uniform of grey
