So close yet so far

I once attended...
A funeral of caskets
In a cemetery, a graveyard
So many people in black
Mourning the deaths
Of soldiers who left abroad
And came back in a casket
Draped with their country's flag
21 guns, 7 soldiers shoot three times
This highest of salutes
Battered down and destroyed
You couldn't see their brave face
For they never opened up the caskets
But only, grievingly descended them
Six feet, twelve feet under the earth
The only visible remains of their lives
Of the bravest of men
A tombstone scattered
On the grounds of other's deaths
