What Would You Have Me Do?

(To Honor Our Fallen Warriors)

Oh gallant sons of glory,
Whose years were so precious few --
In payment for the debt I owe,
What would you have me do?

If only I could hear,
What question would you ask?
To pay this debt of honor,
Just what would be my task?

Could your immortal spirits
Meet me face to face,
What would you have me do
To calm your resting place?

Could I breach the chasm of death
And ask you to answer true,
In payment for the lives you gave,
What would you have me do?
