Love in War…

He wanted to run but also to stay there forever

Her half smile incongruous in this sad place

Yet still she was  so strong and resilient in the face of pain…

He knew he could never forget gray blue deep set eyes like hers

She belonged in a world with no war

to explore her poetry and the violin music She played…

She looked straight into his eyes and said, “don’t I know you?

It stung him like a wasp that perhaps she did not remember 

but then her eyes fluttered like a butterfly wing…

He smiled back at her as she picked up her violin and he knew he would not run away…
