Moments

 Moments

They can't be helped
These moments of loneliness
We just wanted a pen pal
Now hold so much more
A friendship standing the tests
Those of time and distance
The duties of a Marine
Hold close a knowing
Of eachother and our life
No matter how we fight
Harass and disagree
We set eachother free
I am strong and independent
No orders will I take
Tell you like it is
What I want and how
If I close my eyes
I can see your secret smile
For you know best no matter the test
I will survive standing tall
Only to curl into your arms
A purring feline under your caress
Offering you my heart
Til beyond the day we part

Know that I say with pride
I love that Marine of mine
