A Broken Promise


With a salute and a kiss on the cheek

You promised you would come back

and I watched as you marched away

leaving the love behind in your tracks.

Your courage I felt from inside

Your pride, I saw, in your upheld chin

and from then I knew you would fight hard

to save your country and the people within

But at the same time, I didn't realize

that maybe it wasn't all true

Maybe you wouldn't come back at all

and I wouldn't be able to see you

And when you didn't come back, as you said you would

I tried very hard not to cry

But if only you could understand how hard it is

knowing someone you love had to die.
