Far From Home

It seems like an eternity,
since you left our home.
Residing in this new country,
wandering aimlessly to roam.

Carefully plotting your mission,
jotting mental notes every day.
Repressing traumatic memories,
cautiously watching what you say.

You’ve succumbed to isolation,
watching the enemy close.
Performing guard duty nightly,
patrolling your nightmares the most.

Planning has become a ritual.
Your schemes are now in play.
Searching the stars for answers;
praying for just one more day.

One thing you failed to realize,
as you patrol this endless roam.
Your body is now here with me,
but your mind is still far from home.
