As the breezes sweep your lonely gravesites
And the stars twinkle down from above
Know that you died for us that fateful night
And you hold America’s love.
As the full moon shines from high above
And the heavens are dark like a cape
Know that in giving your lives, you’ll be in the archives
And be carried upon a white dove.
As your family and friends weep for your lost lives
And the earth mourns your loss as well
Know that what you fought for thrives, and your teammates survived
As the years pass, your admirers swell.
As your memory fades and turns to a silver star
And no one remembers your name
You are still in my heart, never far apart
And you earned that little bit of fame.
As the fog sweeps in like a lost dove’s wing
And the clouds break apart like cotton
Know that the tall grasses sway, filled with loss from that day
You will never be forgotten.
