Pain for Simplicity

Pain of heart, Pain of mind
Both of which are mine
Pain of body, Pain of pride
All I do deplore
All impossible to ignore

Then there was a knocking at my door

Sir you must got to war

This upset me more and more

Cause now I must tell the girl I adore



She collapsed on the floor

Her crying, weeping I do deplore

Please can't you just ignore

She wept and wept

Nothing I could do I just sat beside her upset

Daring to wish that they could forget



Eventually I sat up and said what needed to be said

Its only you I adore, and I do wish I could ignore

But I can't I must go to war explore a world I've never known before

Stay, don't go through the pain of war

Stay with me, our life a bore

Please don't be upset Lenette

I'll go, come back, there's be nothing to regret

You better prove that Christopher. I'll be here waiting, everything set

Come back to me different then you are now, you'll be the one who will regret



********Ten Months**************

I do miss my dear Lenette

Soon they say we'll be brought back

Once we fend off this last attack

***********One Month Later*********

They say there's not much we can do anymore

We are weakened sergeant's sure there'll be no more gore

Everyone's complaining about the bore

Though secretly they want the end of war

Praying they'll make it back to the one they most adore

Eventually we get the call now we can begin the crawl

The crawl back home

********Another Month*************

A year its been since I've seen Lenette

I've missed the bore of simplicity but there's nothing that I regret

Eventually we get to the town square

Sadly though she isn't there

No something isn't correct



Running off toward her home I slowly start to be eaten by my fear

Now my pain is set into gear

I forgot to watch out for the open wound on my leg where a spear



Was driven straight through I don't stop running until I'm there

My skin burning from the sun's glare

I struggle up the single stair

And stumble into her sister, Blaire

After giving me a thorough stare

She opens the door



Giving me a shove I choose to ignore

I stumble in, falling to the floor

Lenette comes running pulling me into a sitting pose

The fear in her eyes I do loathe



Shakily I stand and she guides me to a table that she set

See I knew letting you go would be something to regret

Are you still the man I first met?



Dear Lenette there is nothing I regret

The thing I feared most was coming back and finding out our time together had been spent

Please answer me this. Am I the same as when we first met?

Or have I done something I'll regret?



You're still the one I adore

The one I live for

The one I'd always wait for

All that and much more



Lenette it's you my love, I'd give anything for

You I'd give my last breath for

Your I'll I could ask for and more

Anything you want from me, its yours

Though there's one thing I must ask for

Anything love, its yours


A simple kiss I dare implore?

She smiles shyly bringing her beauty that I adore

Is that all that you desire?

Yes that is all I require


Shocking that is all you implore

In reality I expected more



Simplicity is something I adore

After the pain of war its something I'd beg for

Only you, this, and nothing more
