HI, MY FRATERNAL BROTHERS.
Well, it's got me all teared up.
But, i see a lonely boy and a soldier (young man).
Two very lonely persons looking for some one to care & love them. I didn't read anything sexual in this. Yes they were in a shower together (boy is clothed), then the 2 of them on a bed, the boy running his fingers on his arm, a sign of caring & non sexual love for each other. Both in their shorts (underwear) on the bed, then the boy straddling him and kissing him.
It was during war time in Europe. But i couldn't hear the words in the song all that well (hearing aids). But i get the way that he kissed me & held me.
The only thing that was triggered in me, is the they had compassion, understanding & love for another. It seemed to me it was NON SEXUAL. Two very lonley males a boy & a man.
It reminded me of little Peter, looking for someone to love & pay attention to him. He didn't have a father and his "mom" sure didn't want anything to do with him.
So i can see me as that boy in that film.
Maybe i missed something. Thanks for showing it.
Heal well my fraternal brothers, heal well.
