A Casket of pure black

A dress of the whitest white

A lifetime of sadness and pain

A day of the longest night

I know that I am gone

I know that I am not here

But please stop crying

I cannot bear to watch

All these tears fall

At my grave

My sweet, sweet soldier

I know things might not seem

That way

But you'll find

The strength to keep moving

Until we meet again some day
