Dead And Awake(Written In Iraq)

Poem By O.S. Brooks

If I had a chance
To right these wrongs
To walk in faith
With her along
These broken walls
No longer strong
I'd hold her close me

If I had a chance to say hello
To conversate with her below
To smile, to laugh, to hear her tone
To lay awake again,
I'd hold her close and next to me
And hope she would remember we
Were everything before these deeds
Had taken her with them

If I had a chance
To let her know
I'll never ever let her go
I'd hold her close and next to me
But love's so far away

I see her face
Beyond the storm

Yet through them all,
You've stayed within,
The center of my heart.

Growing up as best friends do
Summer kept them warm at night
Winter kept them icy blue

and my struggles return
then when, will I learn

If Only For The Moment

During times beneath the heavens
Few are seldom blessed to see
Angels move away the stone
