From the highest clouds

The soldier looks down

Down to the shattered earth

To the battlefield

Below he sees himself

Lying dead

No movement, no sound

Until he sees a shadow

The shadow of a comrade

The shadow of a friend

The shadow of the victor

The shadow of the end

Of the war

Smile, brave warrior

Because the fighting is done

The war has ended

The soldier does not cry

Does not torment himself

Over his own death.

Stare down from eternal rest

And see your dream as a reality

And your dearest companions

At peace once more.
