Honor Your FallenOne for the man who answered the call.
One for the brother taken too soon.
Another for the man who gave it his all.
One for hearts heavy and sad.
One for families torn apart
And one for a boy now without his dad.
One for the endless tears,
One for the new struggles.
Another for so many lost years.
One for the mother's only son,
One for the memories;
And one more, one more until this war is won.
One for the brother who's coming home under the Nation's flag,
One for the ultimate sacrifice,
One for the man in the body bag.
One for the love of the fight,
One for family born not of blood.
One for that final flight.

Blacker than the darkest night
A specter weaving through the clouds
Majestic is his flight
Piercing eyes reach into my soul
From the netherworld he will come
When I am no longer whole
Spawned from the magick of old
In a lingering mist he waits
Cast in velvet shadows so cold
Roses fall upon my grave
Talons clasp my fading spirit
A fallen love will he save
Shrieks echo across a leaden sky
Life descends to the arms of death
Scarlet tears begin to fly
Memories my heart cannot sever
Broken dreams whisper —
real love is forever
