To Honor with Dignity

“To Honor with Dignity” poster art.

The Last Parade

Enter the gate lost treasure so dear
The parade has ended with heroes and tears
Walk softly near stones set sullen in dirt
that challenge the truth asleep in the earth
Long acres of memories vivid and old
Keep guard on ground and tales that were told
Stand silent bold witness past giants that fall
Lost childhood and innocence standing less tall
Steel winter dark light cold beaming our breath
All that we gained now little, now less
Sing thankful last song, give final salute
Respect and dignity, we honor your truth
Look forward to sunshine your loving embrace
Rest now sweet hero, great peace – divine grace
Enter the gate lost treasures so dear
New day another parade with heroes and tears
