dying soldiers wish

Tags: war



(8/18/12)

We were soldiers young and brave

Now we lay here in our grave

Does anyone remember me when I lived

And that I had so much to give.

I wanted all the things that everyone else did

But my thoughts I had hid.

Knowing that I was going to war

To a far and distant shore.

I gave my life defending this land

I’m sure you understand that when duty calls

You are there to give freedom a helping hand.

Can you remember the color of my eyes or my hair

Do you remember the moments that we shared.

Do you remember the look and words unspoken

Of how our love would never be broken.

Do you remember my smile or my laughter

Or the goals that we was after.

I do not ask you to live in memories

But just once in a while to think of me.

Your thoughts will put my heart at ease

And I’ll feel your gentle breeze

As you call out my name

Then I’ll know I didn’t die in vain.

Death does not take a back seat to war

Death is always at the door.
