Eternal Soldier

By 28th March 2014December 9th, 2019No Comments

Long ago I was a Soldier
My country to defend.
My heart will be a Soldier’s
Until this journey’s end.

Now they call me Veteran
For I’m no longer young
But I’ll remain a Soldier
Until my Requiem is sung

When those flames consume me
And my final journey’s made
Standing tall I’ll face my maker
On a Soldier’s last parade.
