The poem reads as follows:
Taps last note has faded,
The mourners moved along.
Yet one young lad still stands there,
Quite in the dawn.
‘Tis the ghost of him that’s buried,
Standing by his grave
Will anyone remember me?
Or the sacrifice I gave?
Will anyone come visit here,
Now that I have passed away?
Yes, son, we will remember,
Those of us that live.
Your sacrifice we shan’t forget,
You gave all you had to give.
And those of us that stood here,
Will come back again each year,
To remember all you did for us,
For we hold our freedoms dear.
And those of us that served with you,
Shall remember every day,
Your laughter, love, and kindnesses ~
Those things won’t fade away.
So rest in peace there my young lad,
You answered freedoms call,
And know that we shall not forget
Those souls that gave their all.
