    Memories




    Time stands still in this place
    Memories of friends and foes come
    Like the wind
    Brothers lost to the night
    Now at peace with the wind

    Once we stood together
    We would drink till dawn
    And sing to the moon
    But now memories
    Once we stood like Brothers

    White stone with nothing more
    Than dates and names
    Some hold a star others a cross
    These are the tombs of brothers
    And memories fading like wind

    The suns would blaze
    As the heat would rise
    We would walk the line
    And we would stand as one
    Like Brothers In the night

    A memory flickers
    A friend lost to the sun
    Quicker than light
    A young face painted red
    A wife in Mourning

    The years pass by and still we remain
    We the lucky few
    We watch over the grieving
    While we stand in the winds
    Looking on a hundred plus crosses

    A widow weeps on her knees
    This white cross all that remains of her lover
    What she fails to glimpse
    We remember the red vomit
    Before the reap

    We stood tall and we stood just
    We were complete but now we stand incomplete
    A son looks at the star but fails to see
    Its value to the honour done
    We remember

    Graves of dirt standing proud
    Men of honour fallen to the reaper
    We met as friends but left as Brothers
    We remember the look of fear
    We remember the loss of life
    I remember the memories forever​
