“The Monument”

I never dreamed it would be me
My name for all eternity

Recorded here at this hallowed place
Alas, my name, no more my face

"In the line of duty" I hear them say
My family now the price will pay

My folded flag stained with their tears

We only had those few short years

The badge no longer on my chest
I sleep now in eternal rest

My sword I pass to those behind

And pray they keep this thought in mind

I never dreamed it would be me
And with heavy heart and bended knee

I ask for all here from the past

Dear God, let my name be the last
