    Eulogy To Her Soldier


    March bravely my hero toward that white light,
    Our love burns eternal, but I will miss you so
    for your battle has ended; your soul has taken flight.

    We were as one and our future looked bright
    but your promise was cruelled fighting the foe…
    March bravely my hero toward that white light.

    We sing to your courage, your virtues we cite,
    your friends here gathered, row upon row,
    for your battle has ended; your soul has taken flight.

    Your brothers who bear you are all holding tight
    to tears that likely will soon overflow...
    March bravely my hero toward that white light.

    You were valiant in combat, defending our right
    to peace in our lifetime and freedom from woe,
    but your battle has ended; your soul has taken flight.

    So farewell, my lover, rest easy tonight
    for my sore heart will mend. I must now let you go….
    March bravely my hero toward that white light
    for your battle has ended; your soul has taken flight.

      You know this form well Marion. I still haven't gotten started trying it out! This reminds me faintly of The Charge of the Light Brigade.

        Touching eulogy, Mariont. Young men and women taken from this Earth in the prime of youth. What a travesty.
