She Was Nowhere

The darkest days
The toughest times
Our journeys through the enemy lines

You were there when things were great
She saw your handsome license plate

She smiled at you
You smiled back
You met her off the beaten track

You picked her up
You drove her there
The wind was blowing her black hair

The brightest days
The best of times
Bowling on Saint Valentines?

You were there when things were great
You brought us home when it got late

She kissed you as the dogs went wild
Chauffeured her around
When she was with child

You took her almost everywhere
It was a lovely love affair

The darkest days have come again
Our journeys have come to an end

The fire burns in your sad eyes
No answers to the “whys”
