    Got to go

    Why, tell me why does it have to be this way?
    I would give up everything. If somehow I could stay.
    We knew this was coming.
    From the beginning, there was no other way.
    Unfortunately a countdown to our final day.

    I’m sorry, I wish there were something I could do.
    With God as my witness, These are my feelings, and honey they are true.

    How far would we have gone? I guess that’s an answer we’ll never know.
    The thing I remember most is, like a candle, your ability to glow.

    Though it wasn’t long, the time we had together.
    You gave me enough memories, for it to last forever.



    I noticed at least for me while I was in the military that I always seemed to meet a girl that I was interested in within the last six months of being stationed somewhere. So this poem was written for all the military members that might have found their true love, if only time would have allowed it.

    Written sometime in 1999 At the Alligator pub in Ramstein Village, Germany
