You died on the day I was born,
During a time when the country was torn.
You answered your nation's call
But, sadly, your name is on the Wall.
America still cries
Every time a soldier dies.
I pray that you have found eternal rest.
Forever, you'll be among the best.
Now, a shining star in the sky
There is no need to cry.
You did what was right
Never again you'll have to fight.
In Heaven, there is no war
Or any of its terrible gore.
Just good things
Every time an angel sings
"Rest in Peace, young soldier".
Sergeant Hilburn Burdette
