A Friend for One Day

Work Text:

A cold and bitter evening,
We lack merriness and pride.
Our bodies freezing over-
But our hearts warm and wide.

We start singing together,
Our harmonies melt into one.
Our voice mix till even:
But I only hear yours and mine.

The next day we meet,
The world is such bliss.
But this all goes tomorrow,
The only day of war I’ll ever miss.

I stand my ground with others,
Thinking we can’t start a new war,
They shot a bullet through my heart-
Our friendship alive no more.

I wish I could have stayed,
To see your face again.
But that would never be the case.

At least my foe is now friend,
And I gained one on Christmas day.
