He wipes away tears and caresses my brow

In the pitch darkness I ask him, "how?"

He kisses lips, I feel his smile

"You forget I've know you for a while.

You always sob when I say goodbye,

but dear, I wish you wouldn't cry.

To see you like this hurts me, so,

I've got something I want you to know.

I love you, dear, with all of my heart.

No distance or war could keep us apart.

Even if I'm not right here,

in your heart, I'm always near"

More tears begin to trickle, then,

sorrow turns to happiness when

he looks at me with a deep brown stare

And it's then I realize he'll always be there
