A bright future that was supposed to be, Washed away in the sea of eternity.

The sight of you walking away was almost too much to bare, As I knew the sound of gunfire would soon fill the unsettling air.

Your honor led the way as you charged into the fight, Fighting to uphold everything your heart thought was right.

Thoughts of loved ones people in your life were running through your head, And all the things that would be left unsaid.

A barrage of bullets rang out through the skies, Ending the fighting and ushering in my cries.

The clouds let loose the water that fell from the sky, As if echoing the feelings in my soul starting to die.

Your breath shallow as I took your hand in mine, Knowing that for you it was the end of the line.

Saying goodbye to the honor and dreams you held so dear, You closed your eyes as I watched our future disappear.

Before I walked away I kissed you goodnight, The clouds giving way to the sun shining light.

The heavens opened up sending a familar presents to bring you into the sky, So at last you would receive your wings to fly.
