TO LEAVE LOVED ONES BEHIND
by Antoine Lamont Booker

HOW CAN YOUR HEART HURT SO MUCH,
HOW CAN IT FEEL SO MUCH PAIN,
A FEELING OF NO HOPE, 
WITHOUT A NAME?

THE CHOICEFUL TIMES 
OF ALWAYS WANTING BETTER,
AND LIVING IN A WHOLE NEW ENVIRONMENT,
WHERE YOU CAN ONLY WRITE LETTERS...

A DECISION WAS MADE, 
A BIG DECISION INDEED,
A NEW PERSON INSIDE 
HAS PLANTED THE SEED.

A HEART HALF-DARK,
A LIFE SO CONFUSED,
OF ONLY THINKING OF 
THOSE LEFT BEHIND, FEELING USED.

BEING IN THE MARINES 
HAS CHANGED MY LIFE IN A WHOLE NEW WAY,
AND I STILL WAIT FOR THE DAY I WILL SEE LOVED ONES,
WHO LIVE SO FAR AWAY.

LOVE IS SO POWERFUL, 
SO VERY STRONG,
THAT EVEN THE WEAK ONES 
WON'T GO WRONG.

TEARS OF HAPPINESS 
WILL AGAIN ROLL DOWN MY FACE,
WHEN I FIND MYSELF AGAIN 
IN THAT PERFECT PLACE.
