THIS WALL

If this Wall could speak it would tell of war
Of sorrow and pain no man should endure
Of how in an instant a life can end
On a battlefield far away
Death unyielding to bend

If this Wall could speak it would tell of woe
Of total sacrifice few were destined to know
It would tell of courage; it would tell of fear
It would tell of longing
for a family so dear

If this Wall could speak to those who pass by
Who stop and stare without comprehending why
Liberty and Freedom come at great cost
America is still free
Though our lives were lost.

If this Wall could speak this is what it would say
Please remember us as you pass this way
Just love this country that we were faithful to
Greater love hath no man

Than to die for you...
