The war wife

Written by: nicholas windle

They said that it would never come,
This war of hate, and not for some.
  A sleepy hamlet, far from all,
But now it’s happened, god helps us all.
 It’s not a year since they were wed,
But now he’s gone, she hopes not dead.
 They are in love, for his touch she yearns,
   A tight embrace, the longing burns.
The closeness only they can share,
 You can see the magic in the air.
A knock then comes upon the door,
As her mind’s brought back to this wretched war.
  Her heart now breaking, and is hoping no –
  She had pleaded with him not to go.
  Is that all to this that makes up life?
 When all she wanted was to be his wife.
