When you come back-

 Ah, 'twill be such returning

As only lips like mine can sanctify!

Then will my arms, that ache with endess yearning

Find sweet surreal from the regret of learning

To give you up, if such there be, to die

            Should you come back

 ...  from  ...  ... of fighting

 ...  is ...   ...  ...  ...  ... 

 ...  ...  ...  ... heart that  ... 

Your soul has met the test without affrighting?

What is there, dear one, after that is doubt!

"Oh but you must come back to me beloved!

Wounded or no, you must come back"

                HE

  When I come back,

 Beneath my helmet muddy,

There'll be a smile, stored through the strife

for you.

There'll be a kiss tender + warm -aye

ruddy

With hint of Gallic skies, for my real buddy

(That's soldier talk, + soldier talk rings

                                                     true)
