A Hero, In Disguise

Young, wild,
Restless and free.
We used to play,
On the swings,
In the fort, the woods.

We would stay up
For hours,
Laughing, talking,
About life,
A blanket covering
Our thoughts,
A light illuminating
Our faces.

We were always
Together,
Never apart.
A family
Within ourselves.
Friends for life
We always said.
Who knew,
When we talked
About going to war,
We said,
Go ahead.

Still young, still


Wild, and free



I stay



Up at night,


Rereading the



Letter that


You sent to me.


About how


Times used to be.


Still young,
No longer wild,
Fighting for the free.
I lay in my cot.
Writing to you.
About how times
used to be.
Cherishing the way,
We spent every day.
