HONORED GUARD

We watched the casket passing by
The honor guard stood tall
Another soldier coming home
Who had to take the fall

Just another soldier now
Whose time had come to rest
Just another soldier
Who had fallen on his quest

Hallowed ground of honor,
No glory did he seek
See the endless rows of headstones
Silently they speak

Slowly blows the trumpet
To remind us of the price
As they laid to rest this soldier
Freedoms child of sacrifice
