Ways To Remember


  Remember him the way he knew
  like no one else, what made you you,
  that though called back, that though he went,
  it was for you his duty sent
  such hostile fire his hand into.

  His love won't die out there. You're who
  is there for him to help him through
  his wars and all they represent.
                    Remember him.

  He never from your fight withdrew
  but by his cause to yours is true
  in selfless sacrifices spent
  to honor you. That's how he meant
  it. You're still with him when you do
                    remember him.
