B. DAVIS… CLOUD RIDER

General Benjamin O. Davis Jr. USAF
General Benjamin O. Davis Jr. USAF
December 18, 1912 ~ July 4, 2002
Cloud rider mounted
on the wings of morning
Seen from afar in an azure sky
Ever to be gone
and never more returning
Fires of your grandeur
are still burning
Was there ever
a brighter shown light
That flamed in the darkest night
Light from a hero’s heart glowed
And through three wars it flowed
Rest well beloved old soldier
Your trials of war are over
Soar on cloud rider above
Leaving here below
your legacy of love
You flew the skies with the brave
And forever will your banner wave

Your life was a celebration
and in seeking your honor
you brought honor to a nation
