Treasure Island

When We Return


Together we trained together we sailed
Together we battled for souls and wailed
Together we cracked up to disguise our fear

When we returned 'Together' it wasn't
For the bliss we shared you weren't present
Shedding blood and tears sacrificed for our children
We salute you our friend as a hero unforgotten
