Anthony W. Pahl

LEGACY OF A VETERAN

He walked upon this earth with peace and freedom in his heart.
He smiled the smile of grace until from this earthly plane did part.
He left behind a solemn gift for the entire the world to know;
that the seeds of peace and freedom bloom; seeds he helped to sow

He knew the agony and pain of war, in his body, mind and soul
and steadfastly resolved that love and honour must be told.
As his body succumbed to the need to pass from this mortal life,
a candle flickered softly, and exposed his gift of love to light.
