To leave you for a mission

It is true that I love you
And now that I have you
It would be so difficult
To have to depart

You would be in my heart
In my every thought
In every mission
Through every nation
But just the thought
Of being away at sea
Far from your warmth
Scares me even more
Than the deadliest storm

So how can I part now
Knowing I’ll miss you
Now that I have you
And can’t live without you?

How can I leave you
For a month in a mission
When my real objective
Is to come back alive
To spend my aging days
With you by my side?
