In off a mission
LBE on the floor
Weapon in the corner
Needing to be cleaned

It's been so long
Since her last perfumed letter
Read 200 times
Ink starting to fade

I killed 3 men today
How can I ever return home
To my wife that I love so dearly
Can she ever understand

Upon my bunk
Todays mail lays waiting
Familiar scent of Obsession
Drifting into the air

I open the letter so slowly
I close my eyes to see you
Sweet lips seduce me
In my minds eye

"My dearest," your letter begins
"I dont know how to tell you"
My heart skips a beat
"I am so sorry to tell you this way"

"I met another
Who is now here with me
And not in some far off land
Know I still love you"

"Please sign the papers
Included here within
I know you love me
So now set me free"

My sins have come back to me
For the lives I have taken
Now no need for her to forgive me
Because now here I will stay

I have taken others loved ones
Fathers, husbands, and sons
Now justice has been served to me
My love is now gone

I sign the lawyers papers
Into the envelope I slip them inside
I pick back up my weapon
And the next mission I will go fly

Oh, Bertram, such a sad, heart-rending write! Not all people are capable of dealing with the strain of a long-distance relationship -- she traded the love of good, honorable man, for instant companionship. Thank you for serving our country -- I am proud of our servicemen and women!
