Seasons drift so quickly
Beneath the single sky
A lesson in the making
All things must come to die.
Therein lies the silence
The journey beyond the breath
To flowers in the forest
We've now become in death.
But speak of the glint of the eye
Reflected in Damascus Blade
For those who saw freedom & honor
And in battle their lives they gave.
So take heart men of Valor
Know your deeds will endure the night
Live on as flowers in the forest
Live on, within God's light.
Rest in Peace, my brother......
