A single visit
Every year
Dressed in her finest
She sheds no tears
Red long-stemmed roses
To honor your grave
Crosses lined in rows
Lost memories
Good men and women
They’ve taken away
Medals pinned to chest
Never forgotten
This rosewood casket
Cradles you near
Deep in the earth lain
Oh, thief of your years
Five and twenty were
Forever we mourn
The cannons they cry
Thunderous roars
Echoes in blue skies
Gentle weeps the horn
Solemnly we stand
Sending soldiers home
