PRAYERS FOR THE FALLEN

tribute

Prayers for the fallen soldiers,
men and women who had dared
and had dreamed
and bled,
and were left for dead.
(They) Faced the fire of hell
in every battle and storm.
(They) Carved their fingernails into stone
and opened the doors of  freedom,
each body returning in brown boxes.
(They) Sadly, rarely made the papers.
God rest the fallen heroes!
