Staring through the tainted window and past the aged bushes, into the night sky,
My heart jumps and my stomach overturns itself, but all is calm in the bright sky.
I stare at the stars twinkling ever so beautifully and I begin to think of you, my wife.
I remember the day I left you, in tears, as stars too lament above in the night sky.
I realize you are sad to see me leave, with uncertainty marked in my own footsteps,
But I suffer from my own grief, my dreams of my lovely, as I stare into the bright sky.
Like an honorable man, I have made duty my imperative, although love will call me back.
I dream to see your tears become tears of joy, and stars to glisten merrily in the night sky.
I hope to be with you again, my love, and to never turn the wheel of chance one more day.
I hope my fate aligns with yours, so we live, die, and share the same part of the bright sky.
I hope you understand why I’ve risked my life, and I too understand your pain as my wife.
I hope you share my hope, so we dare this dream together, stargazing upon the night sky.
