A Soldier's Song

Sing, your favorite song slowly as it plays. Dance, to that sweet melody as your body sways. Transpose, each word as it reaches your heart. Recall, all the memories tender, that never part. What will we do when all the songs have been sung? What emotion will we possess, when every tragic war has been won? Will we stare sadly into each others eyes, and watch painfully tears go by? Or, will we hold each other tight and simply sigh? Can you conceive your favorite song, never to be? Can you truly preceive the day when there are no more wars, threating us to be free? Love would be felt in music, as our lonely hearts would recall. Cold wars are still being fought causing death, as we stain their city walls. Will our hearts remember rhythm? When all the songs have been sung. What conflict will be fought, when all the wars have been won? Without wars, lonely soildiers hearts will sing in gladness. Without song, our souls, hearts, and minds would sink into madness. Gladly, sing your favorite song slowly, as it plays. Let that sweet melody consume you, as your body sways. Transpose, each word as it reaches your heart. Recalling, all the cold wars, that man should never start.
