Captured Memories


Rusty Broadspear

When I kissed him it was so sad,

The gulf of years was unbearable,

The cloak of heartache

Heavy and unwearable.

He showed no tears, only love

As my lips became my own

And my spirit took refuge

In a faraway arctic zone.

Alone, desolate, I could only stare

At the photo and pray

He was reunited with his sweetheart

Forever and a day.

She looks on from another frame.

Bravehearts from the last World War

Together on celluloid

She accepts a kiss, for before

The time they were taken away,

For the love and honesty we shared.

Love travels a long, long way

We cared so much, now I'm scared.
