Love in the Battlefield of Life

No matter the battle
I must be there
for I fear you to be there alone

I must be there...
must be there to colour the ground
colour the ground with my life
so it would remind you of the
bright red roses you gifted me

I must be there...
must be there to douse the thirsty ground
douse it with my sweat 
decorate it with sprinkled tears
so it would remind you of the
pearls you gifted me

No matter the battlefield
I must be there
For I fear that
in the pursuit of victory 
no one will remind you to be humane
No matter the battle
I will be there...

  1. Yes we will hang on
    for the better days to arise from the amber east,
    And make today a yesterday

    Great writing Vindy. Felt each and every word. Proud of you girl.
