60 seconds MAG
They ask for 60 second once a year That is all,
60 seconds to remember those who once stood brave and tall.
They spent their 60 seconds in suffering and in pain,
Those 60 seconds for the freedom we would gain.
60 seconds took forever as he watched his buddy die,
60 seconds to remember the nurse who had to try,
60 seconds went so fast as the bombs came pouring down,
Only 60 seconds to find your courage from within.
Another 60 seconds and he would face his greatest fear,
Those endless 60 seconds as the wives waited to hear.
They ask for but 60 seconds so we'd know the price they paid,
60 seconds in the war our freedom made.
They ask for 60 seconds,
That is all,
To stand in peace-filled silence,
And to hear the trumpet call.
