To The Grave

To the grave of an unknown soldier,

The one all and no one mourn,

All wonder who it is,

And many mourn the loved ones that were never found,
To the grave of the unknown soldier,

Being unknown means no family to visit your grave,

Yet people will stop and remember you,

As an example of all that were lost,
To the grave of the unknown soldier,

You shall never be forgotten,

By any one and everyone,

For as long as your grave exists,

And longer.
To the grave of the known soldier,

Your fresh flowers yet to wilt,

People walk past to the grave that they are visiting,

People stop here to pray and remember,
To the grave of the known soldier,

With tears in their eyes,

Or streaming down their faces,

People remember what you must have been through,
To the graves of the known,

To the graves of the unknown,

With tears in their eyes,

They try to imagine what you must have been through,
To the graves of all who lost their lives in wartime,

You all shall never be forgotten,

No matter what happens,

We will remember them.
