More then a "Name on The Wall."

Name On The Wall

by Jimmy Fortune and John Rimel

 

I saw her from a distance
as she walked up to the wall
She laid a wreath of flowers,
then her tears began to fall

She took out pen and paper,
as to trace her memories
She looked up to the heavens,
and the words she said were these:

"Lord, my boy was special,
and he meant so much to me
And though I'd love to have him,
just one more time to see

All I have are memories,
and monuments recall
So Lord, let me know he's not
just a name upon a wall"

"He's really missed by family,
being home on Christmas day
He died for God and Country,
in a place so far away

I remember just a little boy,
playing war when he was three
But this time it's for real.
He wont be coming home to me"

"You know my boy was special,
and he meant so much to me
And though I'd love to have him here,
I know that this can't be

So thank you for the memories,
and the moments I recall
And please just tell him
he is more than a name upon a wall"

Thank you Marine for your service to this great nation and to our Corps....

THE WALL

Standing here in front of the Wall
silently reading your name
solemnly I thank you one and all
Each of you different, yet the same

The list seems forever endless
but I remember your faces
you made the supreme sacrifice, I confess
as I walk slowly with measured paces

Each one of you answered the call
willingly or not, you gave your lives
Rest easy, my Brothers - heroes all
The Nation still survives


"War drew us from our homeland

In the sunlit springtime of our youth.

Those who did not come back alive remain

in perpetual springtime -- forever young --

And a part of them is with us always."

God Bless  You
