December 7th Remembered

As fleets at anchor
In many harbors safe
Silently sleeping
Final service done
Awaiting more to come

On sacred resting places
In straight rows moored
White masts stand
Saluting valiant warriors
Awaiting more to come

Asleep in honored silence
No more hearts do thrum
All rest together
Christian, Heathen, Jew
Awaiting more to come

Let not these lives be forgotten
Their sacrifices undone
But remember always
They died to keep silent
The roar of future guns
