LEST YE FORGET
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....
