Casualties Forever

Sailors forever entombed in their ships
Eternally on patrol through the waters of time
Pilots dead in the cockpits of their planes
Soaring forever through the skies of hope

Soldiers twisted and burnt on the battlefield
Marching through the mists of eternity
Cavalry left lifeless in a reckless charge
Galloping into the winds of fate

Medics killed before their lifesaving began
Forever helping on the field of dreams
Innocents lost in the crossfire
Living on in the world of memory

A silent prayer for those unsaid
Those unknowns who gave their lives
The real heroes of a war
Are not those who killed the most

But those who lost everything
Except their honor
Their courage, theirs souls
Casualties forever
