Love In The Time of War

The longing for you takes me all the time

My heart and mind travel to youMy tired body remains forced to stay behind the barricades
And ridiculous human made laws and limits to imprison us

I love you
Is that enough?

Is it sufficient for us to cross borders?

And I find in your eyes some of the remnants of my soul

And I find in your eyes some of the remnants of my country
The wounded.
