A soldier's rest
Once he marched upon this land
Now it holds him tight.
Fighting for his country
Marching day and night.
Gun fire swarmed around his head
Bodies fell at his feet.
He had to mourn in silence 
As he marched without retreat. 
Fire filled the sky at night
Bullets ruled each day.
Cloaked within a fox hole
Sometimes he had to stay.
No more now must he battle
Or suffer in any way.
His ashes placed among his friends
His spirits with God today.
