May 2014
Soldiers side by side,
Collecting our wounds and bullet holes,
Not glancing behind, but hastening forward,
Guns ablaze.

We looked to one another,
Believing we could take that hill,
Win the battle.

Guardians side by side,
Saving one another from deadly blows,
Welcoming the scratches and scrapes,
Hearts still racing.

You took a hit, So did I
Still Smiling,
We picked each other up
Running to defeat it.

In the end we were side by side.
You stood, my body curled around your feet,
My jacket and jeans littered with seared holes.
