A soldier’s shadow, cast no more
He fought for us on foreign shores
In his pocket, a picture of home
His heart’s last beat, all alone.
His family, lost a son
Just as his life had begun
A call to duty, his answer true
He answered for both me and you.
As he drew his dying breath
He knew that he had nothing left
He wished that he could have done more
As he slipped away on foreign shores.
