Grass Upon The Grave

There is Grass upon the grave
Of the brother you tried to save
Whose life he so willing gave
In the line of duty brave.

We did watch in awe and with respect
The way in which you did protect
And comfort with your very best
This son in glory gone to rest.

Let not his passing give you pause
To stay you from your noble cause
That another child you will save
And forestall the grass upon his grave.

God bless you for your valiant trying
Though we departed sadly crying.
