FAREWELL TO A SOLDIER

My silence is my prayer,
Inner tears my salute,
For I am always there,
In a brothers last dispute
With death which overcomes,
Us all with pass of time,
Though be it without guns,
His death will be divine.
For warriors walk a trail,
Forged by the son of God,
Who defied deaths pain and nail,
In whose footsteps they have trod.
