I Stand Before You




I stand before you all today
But not one eye can see my way


My time arrived, to leave this earth
A fact so planned, to every birth


It happened where I had to go
My torch for life was so aglow


I transferred while in uniform
Protecting freedom, through a storm


Should I resent I died for you
Not on my life, red white and blue


Please help my family through each day
Tell all my friends, try not to stray


And of the country I did love
Do think of me, through God above


Your memories, brought forth this day
Send love to us, who could not stay
