Tin Gold - Poem by Bill Simmons

Tin gold, long mile
The war is gone, I walk the mile
I’m coming home, I lived to tell
I walk the mile, some they fell

I have seen some things
That walk along with me
They say I will forget
But in my mind, not over yet

Some lived, some fell
Paid tin gold, we fought well
The war is gone, they send me home
I walk the mile, I walk alone

Tin gold, long mile
I’m coming home, I walk the mile
The remembered smiles of those who fell
Will forget not, I lived to tell

Paid tin gold, then let go
Now alone, I walk this road
I lived to tell, how we fought well
Will forget not, their stories tell.
