LEST YE FORGET

Source

Of all the things we have forgotten

oh please forget me not.

I fought for you,

for all the world

peace and love we sought.


My life revolves around the battle

that won the peace for all.

I never did get to send the letter I wrote,

nor could I call.


I fought my way through the uproar.

Through the blast of fire I emerged.

I took the sword to heart

and stole the heart of courage.


To tell the tale to the rest of the world,

six feet beneath the red sewn earth I lay.

Upon a hill of dreams, for all to remember.


The crystal white engraved stones

of the names who stood with pride.

Climb the hill, come to me.

Tell the world how you were set free.


With my companions, I lay not alone.

Our names all engraved in stone.

Though one soul, missing in action....

We all remember; never to forget.


As I wait for you to stand by my side

in honor of those who died,

to present me with a metal of honor

in remembrance of those who fought;

For all who forgot

the ones that made the history of the world's peace known.


Lest ye forget....
