thundering vigil of truth, trust and honor
brothers chained, forgotten and denied
God the sounds of Rolling Thunder
louder than the presidents who lied.
Forgotten heroes made to be remembered
nation that sacrificed their souls to war.
roaring fire of freedom- from just an ember
brother's promise- brought from near and far.
of truth, Memorial Bridge is sighted
Glory's promise flying in the wind
Angels, CEOs, GI Joes united
"Freedom! We have not forgotten them!"
to The Wall where many secrets slumber
roses, gifts and loved ones' tears
Capitol Hill they're only just a number
names no politician ever hears.
thunder past the bridge at Arlington
soldier coffins, row on row,
tombs holding paper fathers, sons
secret sins of betrayal rest below.
White House, flag of POW/MIAs
black, head bowed, a prisoner of the past.
Thunder's promise will never go away
their missing brothers -come home at last
