Once you and I walked hand in hand

We dug our toes into the sand

Salt water lapped about our feet

The ocean air was crisp and sweet

The breeze seemed to caress our hair

Twas such a pleasure to be there.

I can remember that last day

The one before you went away

All wars have costs that rise too high

With little chance for much goodbye.

War has not changed these thousand years

Great danger bides beyond our fears

Tis sad to say but true it seems

That youth still pays for old men’s dreams !
