The angel hovered just above-
The lifeless form below-
A life that started with a cry-
Not many years ago.
Come now my son, you must arise-
Your work here now is ended-
You have fought for right and freedom-
Your country you have defended.
We go now to another place-
Where peace and love abide-
And join your comrades who will greet you-
In your heavenly home on high.
All those you love, and those who love you-
In their hearts you will forever be-
The one who gave his very all-
That the living may be free.
Ex Sergeant, Claude Peter Dhuet
