i am no longer lord

over which yesterdays i keep

and which ones i cannot keep

my yesterdays are disappearing – oh lord

and my tomorrows more elusive to keep

but – only this has been able to keep

me going from all our yesterdays together

the knowledge that like two soldiers in a trench

i will have you beside me to fight till death

just you and i in a trench

unafraid to face death

and now – with a few minutes to go

you are still here

like i knew you would be – to see me go

in peace from here

it is six minutes to go

i am glad you are with me – trench girl

i couldnt have asked for anyone else when i go

except you by my side – telling me

reassuring me 

it is ok to go

meet the maker – trench girl.
