This War

    This war will still be there                                 Our Love will never be dust  
    when even these words are dust                       nor our nights
    when all there is                                              nor our sunshine mornings
    when every tree that stands                             nor our seasons
    is gone dust                                                              will never be dust
                                                                          nor our walks
    this war will still be there                                  in rain on sand snow frost
    when even Bach is forgotten                             nor hidden woods
                          & dust                                       nor quiet soft kisses 
    when my heart & all its every beat                     nor impassioned arms
    its every ache                                                  nor our babies
                have died unto dust                              will never be dust.
                                                                          What is NOT can never be dust.
    this war will still be there
    when You are dust                                           This war will still be there
    and all that you do is dust                                 when we are dust
    your every action                                             This war will still be there
    when your every decision is dust                                    stronger than us
    this war will still be there.                                              & never dust
                                                                                       stronger than us 
                                                                                       & never dust.
