Only yesterday so it felt to a lonely soul

alone on a bench in that old station

waiting for her safe return home

back from the war to my open arms

my body shook with the excitement

nervously here my thoughts intent!


Then a faint whistle as the steam engine

came closer down the picturesque track

into sight saw the puffing locomotive

several minutes passed it came to a stop

then on the platform there you stood

within my whole self it was really good!


Only you could I see tired and so pale

traumatized by the horrors witnessed

back into your peaceful countryside

standing by the panting breathing loco

you came we kissed and embraced

together any nightmares could be faced!


After the conflicts countless tales of happy homecomings

as the men and women return safely for new beginnings

too often though they never do return from the warfare

now only remembered in their family and comrades prayer!


Is it not time for these endless bloody conflicts to end?



The Foureyed Poet.
