Lost Soldier

Marsha Burks Megehee

Empty caskets at Arlington

Empty places at home

Another Independence Day

Another Christmas, come and gone

One more birthday, one more Spring

In the spinningwheel of time

One more promise, knaves and kings

In Washington's pantomime

One more Summer fades away

One more Winter white with frost

We the hearts at home still pray

For the Legion of Our Lost

Chained Eagles, we're their wings

From the enemies' dark lair

Hope from each tomorrow springs

A lost soldier bows in prayer.
