REFLECTIONS ON REFLECTIONS

We’re pleased you’ve come to visit us
here in this hallowed place ~
While we see you standing there,
you see reflections of your face ~
We live through you, our Brothers,
we are never truly gone
if only one still visits us
we can live on and on ~
Some of you brought children
and some, your wives most dear ~
It comforts us to know you share
the feelings you bring here.
You place so gently at this Wall
a wreath of lovely flowers
For you it’s been so many years ~
for us, it just seems hours.
So we thank you for your visit
to this most sacred Wall ~
We’re still, and always, Brothers,
all for one, and one for all.
