A Temporary Farewell
Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust
May your soul live wild and free.
Rid your spirit of troubles and pain.
Embrace the sweet nectar of peace.
Use the light in your heart to lead you to
The war is over brother.
The Demons have lost their hold
On your humble soul.
Let the wind take you back to
The days of smiles, laughter and
Rest your mind knowing those
You left behind are smiling at the sky.
Whispering personal farewells,
Knowing it’s not forever.
Look upon the faces of your people.
The teas of your memories linking
Bonds so unbreakable the wrath of
God couldn’t even break.
Death is a necessary evil and
It is also one we must face.
But soldier just know, those still
Rooted to the ground will live out
Your memory in happiness and
Patience in knowing a reunion is
Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust.
