The purple-blue of twilight, evening brings
Murmuring voices, a mourning dove that sings
A soldier then and now, I straighten as "TAPS" rings

I see faces that are but shadows in a darkening sky
Hear the voices of the night, sounds of a fight, and grown men cry
And, wonder in my heart and mind, ... WHY?

Life has begun to slow, my age to show
I gather my pen and on paper bear my soul
Only in this way can I my futile grief show

My friends are listed here
Some I did not know, yet friends I hold dear
Others wonder why I touch a name and wipe away my tears

If they only understood

We were ...
