Ernie Smiling Hawk


I went to the wall a name there to find
I went to the wall and went back in time

I found his name and time stood still
As I relived the battle for the no name hill

I reach out and touch his name on the wall
Again I ask God why my brother had to fall

I call him my brother I know this is true
Who else but your brother would die for you?

I feel the coldness of the wall disappear
As the warmth of his voice once again I hear

I open my eyes to gaze on the wall and I see
My brother smiling back at me

He’s saved you a place of honor here next to mine
But you can’t come yet my brother it’s not your time

Now hear my words and know they are true
There really is a God and he really does love you
