A Soldier's Funeral - Poem by Billy Loving

Sun beaming down
Solemn crowd
Family gathered round
Grief unable to shroud
Preacher's words so wise
Trying to uplift
Grieving widow cries
Life gone so swift
Bright green casket
The flag does drape
Flowers filling the basket
Crosses dotting the landscape
Another soldier going home
Another soul left all alone
