ONE LAST JOURNEY

chill of late Fall in air
silence and honor
brother passing fair;

Drums slowly to roll
as forward the column
salutes and honors
moods found solemn:

Here a friend, a Marine
passing through the veil
entering into new service
with ‘Semper Fi’ to hail;

Closer each day comes
lining knoll and/or hill
brothers/sisters to join
having done Father’s will.
