Aye Aye Soldier
With bare feet embracing the soul of the earth,
I have walked miles with just a memory of you besides.
I have slept under the twinkling blanket of distant trinkets,
in lonesome search of the homebound tides.
Engulfed in the sustenance of unprecedented courage.
Anonymously, I have sought the chalice of eternal glory.
Credentials of providence walking amongst the mirages,
I have followed the hymn of your breath in times too shadowy.
Abstinent companions lost, as I ushered my pieces ahead
honouring my oath and the ordained serenity at stake.
The wish to be back with my soul in your arms, one last time,
would bind me complete, how often I may break.
I am a soldier – I resurrect the power of being righteous.
Namelessly, my will would weave the soft strands of your smile.
You may never get to know who I was, in your life, Gabriel.
Just remember that for you – I blissfully walked the last mile.
