He waited for her to come
With tea, honey cake, loads of love
And a ring to surprise her.
He was in true love,
She was his girl and
He just wanted to seal it with a kiss.
She came, all dressed up,
But not in a gown as be thought,
Instead donning the military cap.
She had been commissioned,
For the next mission for the nation.
Duty first, the ring should wait, said she.
Six months later, he was there again,
With the tea, honey cake and ring,
Tears rolled down as he kissed
The casket bearing her name.
