Bullets fly on by
While families prayers are held on high
To the ones that aren't close by
But found on the otherside
Going shot for shot on the frontlines
While families hold on
This War Continues On

With the brave ones standing in the
blistering sun
They show their honor by willing to die
Espically with snipers firing from the enemy side
This War Continues On

With families coming undone
Because a loved may be flat on their back
Lying, dead in the hot desert sun
This War Continues On

To Those who return to soon
Aren't seeing but shown honor by Taps and a 21 Gun Salute
While family and friends surrond the coffin and cry
Because a loved on just died
This War Continues On

The unit carries on
Because if they dont they, as well could be gone
As everything around gets hetic quickly
Nothing to grab on so they can hold on tight
Only thing is a brotherly bond in the place of Arabian Nights
For This War Continues On

The life of one
Will seem like a lost cause
Because this war seems like
It will never be won
For This War Still Continues On

This is for all of those that lost someone in any type of Battle or War and for the Unit that loved them brotherly but still had to carry on for like it states This War Continues On

“To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch… to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!” – Emerson
