War and Betrayal

In another lifetime maybe,
I’d ride a camel to the pyramids,
Sail the seven seas to you,
Cross a dessert of arachnids.

I’d have risked my reputation,
Given my life in a world war…
To see your face just once again
Safely inside my door.

Casualties of war exist;
Both sides to me have lost…
I can’t complain, I’m happy,
Although I rue the final cost.

Your name on the survivor’s list,
Perhaps the cruelest part;
Death brings a kinder closure,
Than a forever betrayed heart.
