Memoriam For An Eagle

Whether by fate or design, his death shall not prevent our rise.

Memoriam For An Eagle
by Lee John Barnes

Sleep now brother, let your wings rest
Upon starshine, prayers and dreams,
Your eyes that saw so far ahead,
Are now closed to the cares of this world.

Awake now, to the realm of shining hills,
Where walk our dead in eternal glory,
An eagle you were and will be again,
In steel and stone when the wind turns anew.

The flag will not fall for it will pass,
Into the hands of other heroes who come forward,
As one wave breaks, another shall rise,
For our bonds of blood cannot be broken.
