You said we had another year
Of working this out
Another year of annoying you,
Of learning to trust you again,
Of becoming the friends we once were.

I want my year.
I want all the chances in the world
To tell you how much I care,
How much I love you.

I want to tell you
That through everything
(lies, confusion, pain, pretending)
You were always my best friend.

Now you’re gone

You’re on that plane to boot camp,
Then to Iraq,
Then, as you put it, to death.

I never told you
(and now never will).

But you’ll always be my marine.
