"Stay golden"
- Johnny (The Outsiders, S. E. Hinton)


And she woke up
And the sun was beaming;
The birds were singing her song
She closed her eyes
And harmonized in a yawn


And she knows

That today

Is going to change her life forever

And she believes

That yesterday

Meant more to her than anything

And anyone can see that

She’s in love

So full of life
She could not hide
The light shining out of her brown eyes
She lit the room with a smile
And graced the air with a gentle pride

I had a dream last night
That I was yours and you were mine
And everything was alright
But dreams like that just fade into the sunshine


And she knows

That today

Is going to change her life forever

And she believes

That yesterday

Meant more to her than anything

And anyone can see that

She’s in love

On the other side
Of the world he slept
The sun on him had just set
On her it rose
And on dreams of her in his head


And he knows

That tonight

Is going to change their lives forever

And he hopes

That the note he sent

Will bring her back the time they spent

He can’t wait to let her know

He’s coming home

I love this! It really struck a chord in my heart. I have a big spot in my heart for the people in the military, and poems relating to them just make me want to cry, sing and cry some more all at the same time.

This is so great, I don't even know what to say to tell you how blown away I was. It hits very close to home... I'll leave it at that. Think maybe you could check out my work sometime?

Wow...that was truly amazing and inspiring.  Your word choice is so perfect, and i don't know if you made up the "eye of the storm" thing but regardless, it makes the whole piece even more beautiful.  Spectacular :)

Nice poem! I posted a chapter of my book if you could read and rate and comment it, I'd really like that. And some references would be nice
