IF I DIE TONIGHT

I know you will discern that i love you
Chestnut embroidery on these pillow throws
The sensual warmth of lying next to you under a shade
Are memories that i will treasure
In my dear heart
Lip staining kisses
Deep blushes
Lingering red velvet memories
Candle light under the full moon

DEATH OF A WORLD SOLDIER

Explorations of Beauty and Decay

He was a boy with many dreams
He chose to fight for his country
He died at the hands of a grenade
Now she cries at her grave daily
She was his girl with many dreams

After all that remains is silence
The wind has stopped blowing suddenly
And my skin feels so frozen and cold
