A Soldier’s Heart

While the world falls silent.
While nature breathes.
You can forget all about me.
Like a dream that never was.

I can move now.
To the path of silence.

I am leaving behind the hopes.
The waves looking at us.
No more tears, blurring the moon.
Or lying in the sun.

You can forget all about us.
Maybe one day someone will give you a white flower.
And you  mourn  all that you were.
That has been taken by you.
I am away now.
One night under the crescent Moon.
I dance to the ballad that was once for us.
