Make me whole, give me your soul,
So I can hold you closer to my heart,
To help me complete mine,
As a reminder that our devotion
Isn't just a simple line.
I gave you myself to keep on a shelf
As a promise of loyalty, of care, of euphoria
Of a pact to never give in, never break down, never be ashamed
As a tribute to our love,
A fastener for open wounds
That taunt me from above.
I shared with you my secrets, due
To bind our trust in blood,
These words of hate and hurt
Of prison, pain, and wishes
That I let stand inert.
Share with me a memory
To hold together my mind
To cover this chasm of emptiness, of loneliness
To fuel the fire to live,
To stoke my human core
To remember to forgive.
Stay brave as feelings you pave
To make yourself a martyr,
To make my gifts be not in vain
So I may carry on, too, soldier
Although the veil of death remains.
