He knelt down beside him with tears in his eyes; How long this moment would last, he did not realize.
He closed the eyes as he thought he should do; Thinking never again to see those Eyes of Blue.
Remember when you saw my coffin go by, did you ever visit the broken hearted soldier's grave.. He Knew His Life Was Over, As He Lost All Sight and Sound. In his mind, he was still on the battlefield, Only this time he battled invisible foes - A mind growing feeble, homelessness, Hunger, loneliness, and most of all – Not having anyone to love him. I don't know when or if I'll be back The tears began to flood my eyes. His final words to me Became but a nightmare within a dream. Only Soldiers They are thanked for their service by those who never served.
Remember when you passed every flower shop, did you think about laying flowers on my resting place.. He Knew a Peaceful Sleep, Amidst the Raging Guns of War, But for Him the Fight Was Over. 9-16-2014Veteran’s Day - 2015 This day all flags shed bloodied shadows upon sacred soil dotted with stilled crosses. Commended for their bravery by those who never donned the colors of the country the red, the white, the blue.
Remember when our lips first kissed, you said they would never touch another.. So Rest in Honored Glory, Each and Every One of You. A weary smile on his faded brow, As he held out an old worn-out hat hoping for handouts, A few miserly pennies or perhaps, even a piece of bread.
Remember when we first made love, a tear rolled down your eye, you promised it would be us forever.. This once proud soldier, Now reduced to being a petty beggar, Was a remnant of a cruel war; Where he once stood side-by-side with his comrades And helplessly watched them fall one-by-one.
Also in memory to the 1000’s of unknown soldiers, young men, who fought so that we may be free.
A people persecuted beyond imagination; To help them he felt, was his obligation. To give this tyrant, this devil his due; Not knowing his own demons, would be Eyes of Blue.
He joined the army in World War II; Not knowing his hell would be Eyes of Blue. He rounded a building securing a town; A young German soldier was just coming round.
He plunged his bayonet, the quicker of the two; Killing the young soldier, with Eyes of Blue.
He died an old man, to heaven he went; For this honorable soldier, mercy was sent.
First time since the war, so sad but true; A peaceful sleep, not seeing Eyes of Blue.
A Lamb, wearing white To others a wolf in disguise Spitting slithers, swear I am the Devil's Advocate I marvel how they snort at night Today I will crash the sore whispering party You!
