New Morning

Is there something in this morning
I can give you my love
The warmth of the sunshine warms my heart
Seems it knows that it's you I am thinking of
And from you I can never part

She said no! there is nothing
You can give me in this morn
I am sleepy as I awake from my night
As a gift of a new day for me is born
And your gentleness of love, has me worn

My army commander came to say
I must send you too a desert storm
Where now I await death
Maybe come in the morn
Once more a gift, of a new day born

I wrote my love 
I am safe and well
And soon leave this behind me
Find my home leave all this hell
And in your arms you will find me

She wrote to me please my love
As this breaks me apart
For my heart now thinks of
A man had come and stole my heart
And I am saddened we must part

I said its ok you are feeling this pain
For I know your heart has been lonely
You may never had seen me again
An empty heart I cannot blame
The choice you made was you’re only

I will keep you forever deep in my heart
And remember a touch as gentle as a feather
I learned in the moments of my worst fears
And as my death be near
What I had in my heart held me together
