They went exploring deep into the night,
to look beyond earth and to the stars.
With the moon as their only source of light,
feeling like there was life beyond just ours.
So there they laid, looking up towards the sky,
placed in this universe for each other,
on a warm summers night in mid July.
They knew it was their last time together.
He had to go over the deep blue sea,
to a ghastly place far away from home,
to fight and protect the land of the free.
In her mind the future was already known.
There he went, never to be seen once more,
and to a life beyond earth he got to explore.
