It Takes Two

For my faithful comrade and husband

We are comrades tried by fire,
Closest of allies,
Side by side,
Back to back,
Minefields and air rades.
One will perish without the other’s
Steady hand and a gut feeling
Of where bullets come flying next.
 
As you close your eyes
I stand watch.
As I bleed
You hoist my weight on your shoulder.
You’d kill for me,
I’d die for you.
I load,
You shoot.
We share the last piece of bread by the fire.
We’ve witnessed today go up in flames,
Tomorrow will explode in deadly fireworks.
We will only get through it together.
 
If fate sends a haywire bullet for you,
She should delve it in two,
For I’m not making a single step forward
Across this battlefield of life
Alone,
Without you.
