        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."
