Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Taps
 

 
Taps
.
Slowly they gather at the soldier’s grave
His flag draped coffin properly raised
His unit all dressed in their parade dress whites
Honoring this brave man
That would not give up the fight
.
Rifles slung over shoulders they stand at attention
Waiting for this grave side service to begin
Arlington Cemetery will be his final resting place
Before he goes through heavens gate
.
Brave to the end he saved his team
When he was shot no one heard him scream
He got up again and again to drag his brothers out
Pulling them to safety… for the medics he would shout
.
They didn’t see his blood pooling on his vest
They all were to busy helping out the rest
He never said a word just kept plodding along
He wanted to save his buddies
He wouldn’t quit till he was done
.
They gave him a medal…shiny and gold
It rests in his mom’s lap…clutched in her hand
As they all talked praises about her young man
.
God has a special place for those the give their lives
So that others might live
He watches over them
As they take care of their brothers
.
The soft sound of taps begins to play
Not a face without a tear can be seen today
God bless our men and women who give their all
So that this mighty nation will not fall.
