Never fall in love with the travelling Soldier

Shona Traill

Never fall in love with the travelling soldier
were the words I once heard in a song.

But my heart fills with love and anticipation
waiting for my soldier's return.

I could never love another while my soldier
beckons me with his words of love.

Promises forever of his undying passion
wait for me on his return.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder
I think on these words alone at night,

As my heart aches with love for you...
My travelling soldier

I wait for your return.....
I long for your return.

My love fills like a well,
waiting to fill your senses,

When you come home to me.
